According to PPM, the area had a simple decoration with a low black zoccolo (dado or plinth) with splashes of yellow and panels with painted plants. The middle zones of the walls were also black and contained panels separated by narrow compartments crossed by golden candelabra. Above these, the walls were covered with a rough plaster, visible under which were the remains of a more ancient decoration.
