VI.17.36 Pompeii. May 2006. Looking north along remains of east side of rear peristyle area, taken from VI.17.41. According to Jashemski, steps at each entrance (VI.17.32 and 36) led to an atrium: immediately at the rear of these there was a large peristyle garden. This was enclosed by a portico on 4 sides.   In the middle of the garden was a pool with a fountain, with little steps leading into the pool, but this was no longer in existence when Breton wrote. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993.
