I.2.28 Pompeii. 1935 photo taken by Tatiana Warscher. “Il sostegno della tavola”. (Translation: the table support).
See Warscher T., 1935. Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.2. (no. 55), Rome: DAIR, whose copyright it remains.
Warscher wrote – “Il sostegno della tavola è perforato verticalmente per uno tubo: si poteva farne una fontana, si capisce nelle ore in cui non si mangiava nel triclinio.
L’ambiente sotto il triclinio dove si trovavano i tubi del’acquedotto merita una investigazione speciale”.
(translation: "The support of the table was perforated vertically by a pipe: one understood you could make a fountain for the time in which you ate at the triclinium. The area under the triclinium where the water pipes could be found deserved a special "investigation”.)

According to Warscher, “Il triclinio occupa la parte opccidentale del pseudo-peristilio. 
Si vedono quattro buchi rettangolari che illuminavano il sotterraneo; l’ingresso a questo ultimo è dalla stanza adiacente (a sinistra nella fotografia no.54 (stanza L)”.

According to Warscher, quoting Mau in Bull. Inst, 1874, p.250/51, she wrote –
“Il peristilio, situate più 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 sinistra 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, che 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”.

(translation: "The peristyle, situated higher than the atrium due to the uneven ground, had a walkway of 3 and 3 columns on the south and east sides, while towards the north and west it was bordered with the adjacent homes (I. 2.17; I. 2.22; I. 2.24). The columns were of brick and rough stucco, red-coloured up to a height of a wall that joined them, white above.  As could be seen by the stucco of the columns covered by the wall, the western part of the south portico at the rear only, was separated and transformed into a room, that by means of a door joined with the room to the left of the tablinum, while towards the north, 1,52 m distance from ground,  a large window opened onto the peristyle. Under the floor of this room there was a pit, 0,98m + 0.67 width, 1,32 m deep, faced with stucco and half covered above, while the opening that remained obviously would need to close with a lid. Such a pit, the first of its kind to be found at Pompeii, was undoubtedly to preserve everything, that you wanted to protect from the heat, thus making this the place of a small cellar. On the south side of the peristyle there was still a narrow cupboard, open towards the west, and whose base was formed by the west wall of the room to the right of the atrium, which protruded a little onto the peristyle ".)
