IX.5.11 Pompeii. December 2007. Looking north-west. Room 8, north-east corner of ala and atrium wall, with doorways to rooms 9 and 10. Mau (BdI 1879 (p.197) thought that, almost certainly, on this pilaster facing onto the atrium would have been a personification of either autumn or winter, as was seen on the pilasters between rooms 3 and 4, and 7 and 8.

IX.5.11 Pompeii. December 2007. Doorway to room 9, looking north-west. This room would have been decorated in the IVth Style, on the north wall the zoccolo and plinth were on a black background. Painted vases were seen in the centre of the panelled black zoccolo, with vine-branches at the sides. The middle zone, painted on a red background had a painted central panel, and white side panels with vignettes. In the upper zone were painted figures between architecture.
