VIII.5.39 Pompeii. Plaster-cast of an impression of a boy found on 24th January 1882, around 12 feet (4 metres) above the ancient ground level. Photo by Giorgio Sommer. Also found nearby was a skeleton of a woman, but only her arm was successfully cast.  On her arm were two gold bracelets, and on her hand were two gold rings.  It is conjectured that she was his mother, and that he was infirm and being helped from an upper window when the surge hit Pompeii.  See Dwyer, E., 2010. Pompeii’s Living Statues. University of Michigan Press. (pp. 98 to 103). See Notizie degli Scavi, 1882, p.280: See BdI. 1884, pp126 sgg.

VIII.5.39 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 1, looking north-east from entrance.
According to Jashemski –
“The street entrance led directly into a two-storied portico supported by two columns. 
The portico was separated from the small garden on the right by a low wall, which had an entrance into the garden.
There was a gutter along the west edge of the garden. 
In the north part of the garden was a masonry triclinium (l. medius, 2.63m; l. imus, 3.45m; l. summus 3.10m) and a table (0.59m diameter), faced with marble of various colours, which had a hole in the centre for a fountain jet.
The garden was decorated with many small garden sculptures –
Five small heads of Bacchic herms (0.16m high), Naples Muz. Nat. inv. nos. 120 036 – 120 040.
A tragic mask (oscillum) (0.16m high), Naples Muz. Nat. inv. no. 120 041.
A toad fountain, lacking head (0.14m long), Naples Muz. Nat. inv. no. 120 042.
A tortoise for a fountain, lacking head (0.12m long), Naples Muz. Nat. inv. no. 120 043.
Two small brackets, Naples Muz. Nat. inv. no. 120 044, 120 045.
Two fluted monopodia with the Greek inscription “of Serapion”.

According to Soprano –
Ubicazione: giardino. L. medius, m.2.63; l. imus, m.3.45; l. summus, m.310; diametro della mensa, m.0.59.
Bibliog. “Bull.Inst“, 1889, p.128; Mau, op. c. p.336; Mau-Kelsey, p. 333.
Su un battuto di cocciopesto, in un angolo del viridario, era situato il triclinio con i tre letti a piano inclinato, con tracce di cocciopesto colorato in giallo. 
Le pareti verticali, invece, rivestite d’intonaco rosso, erano originariamente decorate con pitture oggi quasi totalmente svanite.
Il l. imus era piu lungo, del l. summus. 
La mensa, circolare, rivestita di intonaco grezzo, presenta nel piano un rivestimento di segmenti di marmo di vario colore e dimesione. 
Il foro al centro di esso serviva al passaggio di un fistula per getto d’acqua.”
