I.3.25 Pompeii. 1935 photograph taken by Tatiana Warscher. Oecus east wall. Figure at the south end of the east wall, stolen in 1977. According to Warscher, unfortunately she could not photograph the walls of the oecus because of the dimness of the light. She was limited to photograph only the first figure on the east wall. Warscher called this room a triclinium, although she acknowledged that Fiorelli described it as an oecus.
