According to Garcia y Garcia, a bomb was dropped here during the night of 18th September 1943. This bomb fell on the south-west corner of the peristyle causing the destruction of part of the wall south of the turret and the collapse of the rear slope. It was restored in 1946. See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.160-1)
According to Boyce, off the south-west corner of the large portico surrounding the garden opened a small room. This room had a semi-circular niche in the east wall. The room was called a lararium in the reports. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.97, no.478)
