VI.7.23 Pompeii. W.1188. According to Warscher, this shows the remains of wall decorations from the terrace. According to Bragantini, this shows the south wall on the west side of the garden area. The dado was red and showed a dolphin, a sea panther, and a mask with horn and modius in yellow. The middle zone was also red and showed a statue on a pedestal.

According to Soprano –
Ubicazione: xystus.
Bibliog. Fiorelli, op. c., p.115; Breton, op. c., p.275; Dyer, op. c., p.391.
In fondo allo xystus appare uno spazio rettangolare con pavimento a mosaico e tettoia a doppio spiovente, sorretta da due semi-colonne addossate al muro di fondo e da quattro colonne.  Di queste esistono solamente le due del lato occidentale, ricostruite per il restauro della tettoia.
Sul muro di fondo si aprono tre nicchie, la centrale absidata e le due laterali rettangolari. 
Completamente privi di intonaco sono le nicchie e il muro di fondo che pero era rivestito, come le colonne, di marmo nella parte inferiore e di pasta vitrea policroma e di conchiglie nella parte superiore.
Il mosaico del pavimento e oggi completamente distrutto.
See Soprano, P. (1950). I triclini all’aperto di Pompei. (In Pompeiana, raccolta di studi per il secondo centenario degli scavi di Pompei. Napoli, Gaetano Macchiaroli, Editore, p.308, no.33.

According to Jashemski –
At the rear (north end) of the garden were four columns and two engaged columns, covered with blue-grey marble to a height of 0.20m., some with traces of mosaic and shells preserved above. Between the two engaged columns on the north wall was a round-headed niche with a rectangular niche on either side. The latter were at least partly lined with marble, and there is still some blue mosaic in the centre niche. The wall was covered with pumice.  …….etc.
Most scholars believe that the columns supported a pergola, but beyond that there is little agreement. Fiorelli and Soprano believed that the pergola once shaded a garden triclinium. Breton, Fiorelli and Warscher believed that the niches held the statues of deities. Sear believed that it was a nymphaeum, but Neuerburg does not include it in his catalogue of the fountains and nymphaea of ancient Italy. No water pipes are reported, not any indications of a fountain, such as a basin below, as in the garden of the house of the Little Bull (V.1.7). The area between the columns is said to have had a mosaic pavement, but nothing of it remains today. Professor Richardson suggested to me that a mosaic pavement would not have been completely exposed to the elements, and that it may have been roofed with thatch, or possibly with canvas.

VI.7.23 Pompeii. W.1187. According to Warscher, this shows the remains of the wall decoration from the zoccolo of terrace (?) We are dubious about this description but having searched many books, we cannot prove a better description or location. The floor would seem to fit the description of the north side of the tablinum. It is such a beautiful picture, it would have been a pity not to show it !
