VI.15.8 Pompeii. December 2007. East wall of summer triclinium, with small window onto small recess or cupboard.   According to NdS, in the centre on the east wall was a small painting showing cupids taking objects from a small box for the toilette of Venus: the one on the right was already holding a circular mirror, the other on the left was, perhaps, taking out a jewel?

VI.15.8 Pompeii. May 2010. Looking towards east wall of oecus in the south-east corner of portico.
According to Sogliano in NdS, this room was either a triclinium or an oecus.
It had walls painted with decorations partitioned with the usual architectural motifs, on a white background.
The dado was purple.
He said the decoration wanted to be rich and vibrant, but in reality it was bungled, heavy and vulgar.
He thought it made a sad impression as if one was in a catacomb.
Originally it would have contained three central paintings, but only two remained, as the third fell together with the south wall.
On the north wall was Perseus and Andromeda.
On the east wall, Sogliano thought the painting showed Helen and Paris in Sparta.
