In the middle of the east wall would have been the painting of Neptune/Poseidon with trident and dolphin.

In the middle of the north wall would have been the painting of Leda and the swan. According to Sogliano, the upper part of this painting had disappeared.

He described it –

“Leda standing, almost naked, turning to the right; lifting the red mantle that covered him, as the swan stirred over her breasts.”

(Leda in piedi, quasi nuda, volgendosi a destra; solleva il manto rosso che lo covre, mentre il cigno si agita sul seno di lei.) (Bull.Inst 1872, p.172, Fiorelli, Scav. d Pomp, p.111,n.63, Descr. Pomp, p.305).
