VII.7.5 Pompeii. C.1930. Looking west across flooring of atrium, and threshold of exedra (u)/tablinum.   
According to Blake –
The pattern on this flooring was described erroneously, as The Turreted Wall, and used in the threshold of the tablinum (?) of VII.7.5, occurring only once to my knowledge, in a pavement which is probably to be assigned to the first century AD. (p.106)

VII.7.5 Pompeii. c.1930. Exedra (u)/tablinum, looking north across flooring.  
According to Blake –
Almost next door to the Apollo temple, in VII.7.5, the tablinum, if such it be, has a similar sectile centre enclosed in simple bands of mosaic. A band of yellow tesserae serves to connect with it, in date, the threshold which employs identical tesserae for its pattern, a textile design suggesting to the Romans a turreted wall.  The background, except for a strip along the back wall, where some large piece of furniture possibly protected the floor from wear, consists of coarser tesserae and probably dates from a later period. (p.38)
In a previous chapter we have mentioned the “turreted border” which formed the threshold of the tablinum of VII.7.5, containing an early sectile centre. Apparently this should be identified as a “textile pattern.” (p.73)
See Blake, M., (1930). The pavements of the Roman Buildings of the Republic and Early Empire. Rome, MAAR, 8, (p. 38 & p.73, & Pl.6, tav.2)

VII.7.5 Pompeii. c. 1930. Looking across flooring of triclinium (q) towards the central emblema.  
According to Blake –
Probably to about the same time (of the Second Style of wall decoration) belongs the centre of the triclinium of VII.7.5.
In this, more valuable marbles are used, separated by bands of black and white, but the field of black mosaic dotted with quincunxes of white is quite characteristic of the end of the Republic and the beginning of the Empire.
