Paintings of Sydney Vacher

According to the writing on these paintings, they were from No.51 Strada della Fortuna, described as “Decoration of top of a room”, and on the left side is written “about 10ft to floor”.

According to CTP, No.51 Strada della Fortuna was VI.12.6.

According to PPM, “This room, (Bottega/shop 4) had a pergula/mezzanine floor lit by a window in the east wall. The numerous holes for the support beams in the east wall belonged to this phase of construction. Some small remains of 1st Style wall decoration, coloured green, were conserved in the south-east corner.”

See Carratelli, G. P., 1990-2003. Pompei: Pitture e Mosaici. 5. Roma: Istituto della enciclopedia italiana, (p. 91, no.8, described as “Bottega 4”.)

However, these paintings do not seem to agree with the description of 1st Style, so they are most likely from somewhere else.

Perhaps, they were seen and painted in the rooms in the south-east corner of the atrium of VI.12.5, at the rear of VI.12.6.
