VII.9.68/67 Pompeii. September 2011. Looking north to entrance doorway on left side of fountain.  Photo courtesy of Michael Binns. According to Cooke Cockburn and Donaldson, there is a flight of stairs leading into the street by a doorway. At the bottom of the stairs is a small chamber, having an opening into the street, and one on the landing at the foot of the staircase. The walls of this chamber are embellished with various paintings on a black background, among which is a remarkable landscape, having in the distance lofty mountains, a river winding through verdant meadows, with herds and shepherds and views of villas, and in the foreground a statue, before which is a group offering sacrifices. There is a fountain in the street, immediately opposite the door of the staircase. The outer elevation of the walls towards the two streets is decorated in stucco with pilasters, cornices and pediments, lightly relieved, and not inelegant in detai, (see VII.9.67).
