According to Wilhelmina - “There was great excitement at Oplontis when a headless statue of Nike/Victory was found in front of base 10. (X).  As we excavated the soil behind the statue bases on the north where there had been a considerable covering of lapilli, we found the soil contours of plantings with root cavities which we emptied. In them we found considerable charcoal, which when analysed proved to be oleander.”

According to Wilhelmina, writing in 1984 – “So far six of the white marble statues that were displayed on the statue bases have been recovered. Beginning at the south end, there was a head of Hercules on the marble pillar on statue base 3, next an ephebe, and then a large statue of Nike. (see 1978 Jashemski excavations).
Balancing these in corresponding positions along the north end of the pool, was another Nike from statue base 10, a statue of Artemis/Diana (?) still standing on the statue base in front of root cavity 11, and next a head of Hercules on the marble pillar on the base in front of root cavity 12.”
