VI.10.2 Pompeii. Decoration, on right.
According to Zahn, these were paintings of two decorations in their original colours.
The decoration on the right was found on an exterior wall of a house in Via di Mercurio, see VI.10.2.
The other decoration, on the left, with the arabesque with the flying figure at its base was painted in a small room of a house of the street, situated between the Pantheon and the Casa dei Capitelli figurati. (presumably from Via degli Augustali either VII.4 or IX.7, but not located yet).
