According to Fiorelli, this room had access to a short underground passage for keeping provisions. See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.37)
According to Warscher, quoting Mau in Bull. Inst, 1874, p.250/51, she wrote –
“Il peristilio, situate piu alto dell atrio a causa del terreno inuguale, ha corridoi di 3 e 3 colonne sui lati S ed E, mentre verso N ed O confina con le case adiacenti (I.2.17; I.2.22; I.2.24).  
Le colonne sono di mattoni e di stucco rozzo, color di carne fino all’altezza del muriciuolo che le congiunge, bianco di sopra.
La parte occidentale del portico meridionale, posteriormente soltanto, come ci fa testimonianza lo stucco delle colonne, coperto dal muro, ne fu separato e trasformata in una camera, che mediante una porta corrisponde colla camera a sinsitra del tablino, mentre verso N con una finestra larga, distante dal suolo m.1,52, si apre sul peristilio.
Sotto il pavimento di questa camera v’è un cavo, largo m. 0,98 + 0,67, profondo m. 1,32, rivestito di stucco e di sopra a metà coperto, mentre l’apertura che rimane evidentemente doveva chiudersi con un coperchio.
Sifatto cavo, il primo di questa sorta che si sia trovato a Pompei, serviva senza dubbio per conservare tutto ciò, cher si voleva difendere dal caldo, facendo così le veci d’una piccola cantina.
Sul lato meridionale del peristilio vi è ancora un armadio stretto, aperto verso O, ed il cui fondo viene formato dal muro occidentale della camera a destra dell’atrio, la quale sporge un poco nel peristilio”.
