VI.5.5 Pompeii. December 2007. Looking south-east across peristyle, from west portico. See also VI.5.21.  
According to Fiorelli, the garden area was enclosed by a portico on the west, north and east sides.
In the middle of the garden was a pergola supported by four small slender columns painted with leaves and scales. 
According to Jashemski, on the south wall was a painted garden scene, divided into three panels by the half-columns.
Near this wall were three masonry pedestals, on which three statuettes were found on March 31st 1837.
The statuettes were described in PAH as showing –
Hercules (0.60m high without base) with a gnarled club, a lion skin and with the three apples of the Hesperides;
A Bacchus with a cup in one hand, a thyrsus in part missing, in the other hand, and a panther at his feet (0.71m high without the base);
A third, perhaps Flora, partly broken (0.77, high, without the base, if complete).
Schulz described one of the statuettes as Silenus (Bacchus?), identical to the one found in the House of the Grand Duke of Tuscany.
He says that all the statuettes were given to the Grand Duke Mikhail.
