VI.15.5 Pompeii. March 2009.  Garden area 11, looking north-west from east portico, room 12. According to Jashemski, the garden was excavated in 1895-96, it was at the rear of the tablinum. It had a portico supported on the north by two brick pillars, on the east and part of the south by brick columns joined by a low masonry wall. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993.

VI.15.5 Pompeii. March 2009. Looking across south portico to doorway to room 10, kitchen?
According to NdS, this room had a window overlooking the garden. The mosaic floor not only covered the floor of the room but also the walkway of the south portico. According to Sogliano in NdS, this meant that previously the floor had belonged to a much broader room with a doorway turned to the east. This wall was later demolished and the smaller room 10 was formed, together with the south portico. This new smaller room had a doorway in its north wall and newly-built rustic walls. See Notizie degli Scavi, January 1897, (p.28)

According to Jashemski –
In the middle of the garden, the excavators found three slender octagonal columns, and the remnants of a fourth one, finished with green stucco, all that remained of the pergola that had once shaded the triclinium. During the renovation of the house the triclinium had been destroyed save for a part of the west couch which served as a support for an aedicula, still without stucco, built against the west wall apparently to serve as a fountain.
In front of the aedicula niche, on the same base, was a circular masonry monopodium covered with stucco.
Inside the niche was a white marble puteal, covered with a grey marble plate on which stood a marble fountain statuette of a standing nymph.

Ubicazione: peristilio.
Bibliog. Sogliano, Gli scavi di Pompei dal 1873 al 1900, In “Atti del Congr. Internaz. dii Scienze Storiche”, V. 1904, p.334.
L’esistenza di un triclinio nell’area del peristilio era affermata dal Sogliano con la seguente notizia –
“Il peristilio, in origine, conteneva un triclinio di fabbrica protetto da un pergolato che era sostenuto da piccole colonne ottagonali.
Posteriormente, nella rinnovazione della casa, il triclinio fu demolito e non ne fu risparmiata che una parte del lato ovest; la quale parte servi di sodo per poggiarvi le pareti di una nicchia a volta con frontoncino.......”

According to Wilhelmina, “found inside the niche was a white marble puteal, covered with a grey marble plate on which stood a marble fountain statuette of a standing nymph (0.54m high, Naples Archaeological Museum inv.no: 124 841) leaning with her left arm on a leather bag placed on top of a trunk of a tree. 
The statuette still showed traces of colour. There were various statuettes nearby.”
