VIII.2.26 Pompeii. September 2005. Doorways to two cubicula on west side of atrium. Room ‘o’ on the left, and room ‘p’ on the right.
 In room ‘o’, the floor was found paved with simple white mosaic with a border of black tesserae. On the south wall (on left), the purple zoccolo showed a motive of a taut garland with a disc at the centre, and a border of ‘carpet’ squares. The middle zone was subdivided into panels, of which the central panel was on a blue background, and showed a painting already unrecognisable at the time of excavation. The side panel was black. On the west wall, the upper zone of the wall although discoloured and faded, showed traces of architectural partitions but not very well defined.
In room ‘p’, the floor was of cocciopesto similar to that seen in the room ‘L’. In the north corner of the west wall, the remains of the plaster of the red zoccolo and the darker red of the middle zone can still be seen. Nothing remains from the other walls and no evidence from the south wall where Mau could see a painting, partly preserved, of Venere Pescatrice. She was seen turning towards the left.
