VI.16.28 Pompeii. March 2009. Room I, west wall, remains of painted plaster.According to NdS, although the other walls showed three panels on each wall, because of the space taken up by the doorway in the west wall, this wall only had two painted panels. The panel on the left showed a painting of a vase. The panel on the right, opposite the one on the east wall with the painting of Europa on the Bull, showed a scene of the sea or a lake. There were three boats that seemed to be making for a landing place on the right, pushed by the crew that were rowing with the oars. There one could see, here and there, male figures, the most notable in the lower part, the middle and one walking to the right, carrying a large beam on his shoulders. The cornice was missing and the upper painting was damaged.
