IX.7.16 Pompeii. Triclinium, found on the west wall in 1867, and then reburied.
Due to the bad state of the painting when found, it was recognised originally by Mau as Selene and Endymion (but most probably Diana and Acteon).

IX.7.16 Pompeii. May 2010. Cubiculum. Looking towards the west wall of a room with the remains of painted plaster, on the south side of the atrium. According to Schefold, on the west wall a painting of Mars and Venus was found. (Helbig 323) A drawing of the painting can be seen in Schefold, K., 1962. Vergessenes Pompeji. Bern: Francke. (fig.55, 3) On the east wall, not photoed, a drawing of the painting of Achilles receiving the arms can be seen in fig.55, 4. On the south wall, on the left of the photo, a fragment of the wall painting of Cassandra, Hector, was found.
According to Mau, “The walls were of the same character as those in the triclinium and the other cubiculum. The walls were simply decorated in the III style. The zoccolo was painted with a black background, the middle of the walls was red, and the upper part was white. The execution of the decoration was considered inferior, by Mau, to that of the other cubiculum. In the middle of each wall was a painting in the usual painted pavilion 
- on the left (?) wall – the design showed the interior of a house with a column on the left middle of the painting, a second column was on the right, garlands were hanging on them. In front of this last, a little more to the left, was a young person with heroic stature, with a red cloak (......) In his right hand was a golden helmet. More to the right was a woman (...) Another woman stood beside the base (......) They both looked towards the helmet.
- on the rear wall only a fragment remained: towards the right edge was a figure: the one here had a lance in his right hand (see also Sogliano 560, thought to be Hector) and Helbig 1381, 1391b)
- on the left (?) wall was a painting of Mars and Venus”.
See Mau, in BdI, 1883, (p.131-133)
According to Boyce, the room behind this wall would have been the kitchen. This would have had a lararium painting on the north and west wall. Traces of an older lararium painting, not entirely covered by the later one, were to be seen on the west wall.  A figure of a Lar could be made out on the left side.
See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p. 87, no.436) 
and Boyce gives the reference Bull. Inst., 1883, 145.
