VIII.3.8 or VIII.5.28?

The following five photos are a mystery, and so have been included here in VIII.3.8.

They may be of a wall in a room on the east side of the peristyle, described by PPM, as room 17.

Similarly, they have also been included in VIII.5.28.

According to PAH (1819) –

 

See Fiorelli G., 1862. Pompeianarum antiquitatum historia, Vol. 2: 1819 - 1860, Naples, (p.1)
13th January 1819.
There are already two rooms following to the one, which was recovered in the presence of the Prince and Princess of Salerno, and really the one that proved to be a pharmacy, as well as two small side rooms to the same.  
(Note: the mention of the “pharmacy” may mean VIII.3.10).
Gell wrote of VIII.3.10 – “once supposed by the custodi to have been that of an apothecary, see Pompeiana, p.7).

13th February 1819 –
In the past week, the site where the latest research has taken place has continued, and already four other small rooms have been prepared, and we continue to excavate to set up other rooms.  In one of the said rooms were found two broken terracotta vases filled with lime.

6th March 1819 –
In cleaning the courtyard of the house next to the one that was looked at in the presence of Archduke Palatine, and really where two other rooms were sought, a mosaic floor had shown itself, divided up by a black and white edge, and with a border around it that figured walls of a city with the corresponding towers.

According to Gell in Pompeiana –
“The Plate No. V. is taken from the wall of an apartment in this quarter, and is given principally on account of the practicability of its application to modern decoration. It might make a beautiful library, with a mirror in the centre, vases arranged on the top, and maps to be drawn down from the frieze: books might occupy the space under the red curtains, and archives etc., the base.”
See Gell, W, 1832. Pompeiana: Vol 1. London: Jennings and Chaplin, (p. 7, and Pl. V).

According to Mazois –
La Planche XXVI offre une peinture murale trouvée dans une maison de ce quartier. Sir William Gell, Qui la copie sans la colorier et en y faisant quelques changements, licence que nous nous sommes gardé d'imiter, s'exprime ainsi ; "On donne ici ce dessin à cause de son application facile a la décoration moderne. |On pourrait établir sur ce plan une belle bibliothèque etc.".

Plate XXVI offers a wall painting found in a house in this neighbourhood [near Temple of Fortuna]. Sir William Gell, who copies it without colouring it and making some changes to it, a license which we have been careful not to imitate, expresses himself thus: 
"This drawing is given here because of its easy application to modern decoration.
A fine library, etc., could be established on this plan.”
