According to Breton, several of the rooms here were richly decorated.

This might be from rooms 13, 14 or 15 on west side of peristyle.

Room 15 may be doubtful, as when excavated it had two identifiable paintings, according to Helbig, they were of Danae, and of a Nymph.

This painting of two figures, perhaps Apollo, perhaps Pindar, would have had to be on the third wall and yet not mentioned.

 

According to PAH, 1,3, dated 27TH OCTOBER 1810 (p.43) -

“This (room) was almost all excavated, I say almost, because it had not been possible to lift the earth in this one, for fear that it would not ruin one side of the same room, it remains decorated with grotesque architecture, and compartments on a red field, elegantly painted, and in the middle of it there are good decorative paintings, with two figures. The upper part of the façade has a white field, on which are paintings of the usual grotesque decorations made with taste. The zoccolo had a black field and painted above with marine animals, plants, etc.  You see the curve of the vault with a stucco frame that limited it, and this was partly dyed in various colors. The floor was “mattone pesto”. Found in this room were the following, despite the fact that it had already been searched by the ancients, by the walls found perforated, as by the lapilli found all around in confusion .......................”

(Questa che si era quasi tutta scavata, dico quasi tutta, perche non si era potuto per intiero levare il terreno in questa, per timore che non ruinasse uno de’lati della stessa stanza, resta ornata d’architetture grottesche, e compartimenti su campo rosso, elegantemente dipinti, e ne’mezzi vi sono delle buone pitture istoriate, con due figure. La parte superiore di cada una facciata ha il campo bianco, sul quale sono dipinti de’soliti ornati grotteschi fatti con del gusto. Zo zoccolo era in campo nero e sopra dipinto con animali marini, piante, ec...  Si vede il sesto della volta per una cornice di stucco che la limitava, e questa era in parte tinta a varii colori. Il pavimento era di mattone pesti.   In questa stanza si era trovato cio che segue, malgrado che essa fosse stata gia ricercata dagli antichi, si per le mura trovate perforate, come pel lapillo trovato tutto posto in confusione......Bronzo...............etc)
