In this room, the low zoccolo/plinth was yellow and sprinkled with red.
Above the zoccolo, in the middle zone of the south wall are the remains of two large red painted panels, with a narrow yellow panel between them.
Hanging in the red panels were painted garlands, shields, discs and lances; the vignette in the centre of the east panel depicted a dove, and the vignette in the centre of the other red panel showed a couple of doves on a branch.
In the yellow panel was a painted figure.
According to de Vos in PPM, the male figure dressed in a green tunic and red cloak, painted on a yellow background, held a decoy bird in his raised right hand and a long twig (una paniuzza) in his left hand, and was standing on a cage that served for transport and base for the decoy. 
The upper zone of the wall was painted white and divided into panels by red vertical borders.
