VII.9.47 Pompeii. September 2005. Entrance doorway.

According to Gell –

“At the entrance next the Pantheon is an anchor between two dolphins in mosaic, and on the right on entering the Atrium, is, or was, the picture (see Plate VI, below), which, however the colours may have changed to red by time or heat, must be considered as an agreeable composition.

The Atrium has two alae, in one of which is an altar, and after passing the Tablinum, where is a picture of Venus disarming the God of War, with Cupid carrying off his sword and shield, we find a magnificent peristyle of seven columns by six, terminated by a wall, in which is an opening to the alley of the Chalcidicum.”
