VI.15.5 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 7, south wall of tablinum, looking west. According to NdS, opposite the entrance doorway was the tablinum, with a good mosaic floor. In the middle of the floor was the usual rectangle indicating that this tablinum was also used as a triclinium. It was devoid of decoration, but there were some remains of the oldest decoration such as in the walls and doorposts, covered in grooved stucco, and with a red dado.

VI.15.5 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 8, looking east across triclinium.   According to NdS, the floor of the triclinium was “alla veneziana”. It was first decorated in the Second Style, with ashlars painted red-cinnabar, surrounded by green ribbons. From the dado with a yellow background protruded, in perspective, some pilasters with cornice and base, on which columns rested, simulated to support a portico around the walls. Fortunately for us, this beautiful but simple decoration had survived as it would have been substituted by another, as the room was found full of building materials such as limestone and others.
