VI.15.12 Pompeii. September 2004. Looking west along entrance corridor across atrium to tablinum/triclinium. According to NdS, the fauces, or entrance corridor, led into the atrium which had an impluvium faced with signinum in its middle. At the head of the impluvium was a travertine monopodium grooved at the front, and on both sides the mouth of a cistern, that to the north-west of the impluvium was covered by a terracotta dolium restored by the ancients, the other in the south-west corner by a low puteal of travertine. Opposite to the entrance was a rather spacious room, probably the triclinium. It had a window overlooking the atrium. See Notizie degli Scavi, June 1897, (p.270)
