According to Schulz in BdI, at the beginning of October 1839, in the garden, an aedicula was found, which one ascended by four steps. At the foot of the aedicula were found two marble herms and a marble candelabrum. And in the left corner of the same courtyard was another niche, of elegant architecture, made from masonry. In various parts of this Courtyard were found many fragments of marble and bronze pots, including a marble head of Jupiter.
