IX.2.27 Pompeii. May 2005. Stairs to upper floor, on east side of atrium. According to Trendelenburg, 
“The room adjacent to the triclinium was regarded as a cubiculum, due to a stripe in the floor composed of black and white stones, which indicated the place where the bed would have been. Then followed an opening for the stairs, and at the end of this side another room with a spacious entrance. In front of this with the door of a room, which preserved its stucco decoration: the zoccolo painted in the guise of marble, painted yellow panels with cupids and frieze of the same colour. The wall opposite the entrance also featured a painting of the noted representation of Narcissus sitting on a stone, below which was a pond in which was reflected his face. He supported his left arm on the stone and in his right hand held a spear, while a cupid looked towards him”. 
See BdI, 1871, p.178
