See Zahn, W., 1828. Die schönsten Ornamente und merkwürdigsten Gemälde aus Pompeji, Herkulanum und Stabiae: I. Berlin: Reimer. No.69.
According to Schefold, this was from the east wall of the triclinium in VI.2.14.

According to Kuivalainen – 
in the upper centre of this painting with the red background, is “an almost naked young Bacchus with a thyrsus”.
"A youth standing with his weight on his right foot, on a red background, head slightly turned to the left. 
His right arm is raised to the top of his head, and in his raised left arm he holds a thyrsus with a bunch of leaves upwards. 
A large green cloak covers his left shoulder and reaches to his calves".
