According to PPM, “provenanced from one of the atrium walls was also a fragment of fourth style decoration, cut from the walls several days after it was found in April 1759, and now preserved in Naples Archaeological Museum, inventory no. 9700.

This fragment is the only piece that gives an idea of the grand decoration of the room.

The other fragments of paintings described on the same date (28th April 1759) showed cupids and two figures fighting or wrestling.”

According to Fiorelli,

“28th Aprile 1759 – Se continua el travajo en la maseria de Irace y a la colina que mira el cammino real, y el dia 26 han traydo las 5 pinturas cortadas por el joben de Canart, de que di cuenta en la semana precedente. Ademas se han descubierto otras 2 pinturas, la primera de 5 pal. y on 2 on, por 6 pal. y on 4 on., que contiene tres puertas de arquitectura, 2 columnas, fajas, y 2 pedestrales con 2 vasos, y un canisto lleno de frutas; la segunda de 2 pal. y 2 on. por 4 pal. y 1 on. contiene tres figuras, la una de un cupido bestido con alas y un baston, y delante un pequeno animal sobre un pedestral, otro cupido bestido y con las dos manos tiene un escudo, y en medio una figura de hombre bestido, que pareze de un guerrero, y tiene en la mano derecha una espada en acto de matar una otra figura; ademas se ha traydo una llave de fuente de metal”.

See Fiorelli, PAH 1, 1, p.94, and addendum p.140 – 28/4/1759.

“Bellissima pittura di un sacrificio a Pallade, che su di un piedistallo in uno scudo era rappresentata in atto di uccidere Pallante”

 

According to Pagano and Prisciandaro,

“28th April 1759 – continued the excavation on the hill that overlooks the sea: on the 26th day the young assistant of Canart had cut the 5 paintings, in addition to another 2 paintings found:

Painting 1) –

pal. 5 on 2 x pal. 6 on 1 ( approx.1.36m x 1.67m) painting containing architecture with 3 doorways, 2 columns, fillets and 2 pedestals with 2 vases/pots and a basket full of fruit. (Nap inv. 9700, AdE IV, 65, 326, PPM VII, 954, 9)

Painting 2) –

pal. 2 on 2 x pal. 4 on 1, (approx. 0.57m x 1.08m) painting showing three figures, one was a flying cupid with a stick, in front was a small animal, on a pedestal was another cupid with a shield in his hands and in the middle of it was a figure of a clothed man, who looked like a warrior with a sword in his right hand, in the act of killing the other figure. (Nap inv. 9234, AdE II, 41, 233, Helbig 774).

VII.16.17-22 Pompeii. May 2006. Looking west across atrium and impluvium.
According to Jashemski, on the left was a doorway with a grand view through a large room to a courtyard garden (not photographed).
Beyond the garden was a stately oecus. In the courtyard garden, a fountain jet rose in the middle of the round pool. Faint traces show that the interior of the pool had been painted blue. A gutter around the edge of the pool carried off roof water.
