According to Fiorelli,

“VI.17.9. Viene quindi la porta di una casetta, avente lungo protiro, ed in fine di esso la cella dell’ostiario. L’atrio tetrastilo, che qui rinchiudeva un piccolo viridario, era circuito da un cubicolo, da un’ala, dalla fauce portante alle stanze superiori, dalla cucina, e dal tablino collocato fra il triclinio ed un oecus.

See Fiorelli, G. (1875). Descrizione, (p. 432).

See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p. 159).

(translation –

"VI.17.9. Then comes the doorway to a small house, with a long corridor, and a servant’s room (cella ostiarius). The tetrastyle atrium, that enclosed a small garden here, was surrounded by a cubiculum, by an ala, by the corridor leading to the upper rooms, the kitchen, and by the tablinum placed between a triclinium and an oecus.”
