IX.3.1/2 Pompeii. c.1930. Mosaic floor of room on left of entrance corridor of IX.3.2.
It is believed that originally this room was linked to the atrium by a doorway at the south end of the east wall, and probably used as a triclinium.
Later, it’s use was changed to a workshop. 
This white mosaic floor with a simple border of black tesserae was decorated with a square “carpet” of a meander pattern including squares in four colours.
