It should be noted that, apart from the west side, the house was entirely destroyed by the bombing during the night of 14/15th September 1943. 
According to Laidlaw, the roof, the south apartment, and the portico behind the main house block are almost completely modern reconstructions made in 1970-71.

VI.2.4 Pompeii. c.1829. Drawing of mosaics by Mazois.
The mosaic on the top left, is possibly from Diaeta 33, (cubiculum in south-east corner of garden area), a black and white mosaic.
Pl. XLVI, - the mosaic on the top right, may be from Villa of Diomedes, no details of other lower two mosaics found yet.
See Mazois, F., 1824. Les Ruines de Pompei : Second Partie. Paris : Firmin Didot, (p.88, Pl. XLVI). 
According to Laidlaw –
“Only fragments of the pavement of Diaeta 33 survived the bombing in World War II. 
When the debris was cleared in 1971, large chunks of the black and white mosaic with a design of interlinked octagons and meanders were recovered in situ, and the entire pattern was then restored, the interstices being filled in on the basis of a pre-war photograph, Note 166 below.
Note 166: SAP Neg. No. C 990 (1917); PPM IV.1,134, fig.81, and see also Pernice 1938, 38 with pl.10, fig.6.
In 1971, the Mason used tesserae found scattered in the rubble, but when he ran out he got a couple of buckets from the nearby Casa della Fontana Piccola (VI.8.23), where repairs were being made. Consequently, the tesserae used in the restoration are a melange from the two houses.”
