V.2.1 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 15, looking towards east wall through window in north wall overlooking garden area.

According to BdI, this room had a beautiful floor of white mosaic with a black stripe all around it and was decorated on the threshold.

Room “r”, the largest room in the house, painted in the last style.  

Above a black zoccolo/dado followed the large yellow compartments, minus those that formed the centres of the walls: the latter on the long walls were blue, on the short walls were red-cinnabar.

They are divided between them by the usual architectural perspectives with a white background.

The upper part was divided from the middle part by a stucco cornice with imprinted ornaments and colored white, red and turquoise.

The upper part contained the usual fantastic architecture with garlands, peacocks and some human figures.

The whole thing makes an effect not very pleasing for the large masses of colors too bright and contrasting with each other.

See Bullettino dell’Instituto di Corrispondenza Archeologica (DAIR), 1885, p.163-164. (room “r”).

According to PPM –
On the east wall of triclinium “r”, at the south end, showing a glimpse through a window, from the top of which hangs an oscillum with garlands, and which was closed at the bottom by a brick masonry, shows a building with Ionic columns, perhaps a temple in front of which was a tree on which a bird flies.

Preserved in the lower part was the blonde head of the sleeping Ariadne, turned to the spectators on her left arm.
In the upper part, two local divinities can be seen.

Kuivalainen describes –
“In the right corner, the head of a sleeping figure reclining towards the right, depicted almost frontally. Behind her are two male heads, the bearded one with a jar, both wearing wreaths with tendril-like attachments.”
Kuivalainen comments –
“Probably a young Bacchus with his thiasus, advancing towards a sleeping Ariadne.”

Above the damaged central painting, Kuivalainen describes –
“a standing youth on a white background in an elaborate architectural setting. In his right hand he possibly holds a cantharus, from which he pours wine onto a now damaged panther at his feet. On his left arm, and possibly around his loins, he wears a reddish cloak, and carries a thyrsus with a bunch and a ribbon at the top in the same arm.”
