IX.1.22 Pompeii. December 2007. Room 1, atrium looking north to room 7. According to Schone in BdI, “In the atrium because the floor was ruined, a large cistern was revealed.
The atrium showed the usual proportions and regular arrangement, except for the fact that the usual rooms to be found on the left side were missing. The walls were simply decorated in red, divided by distinct white stripes with some colourful ornament. On the second of these stripes to the left, there was a graffito “sabinis”, which was the only oscan inscription found in these excavations.”
See BdI, 1867, p.47-48

IX.1.22 Pompeii. Room 7, tablinum. 1886 painting of wall decoration, but with central painting of cupids in a boat.
See D’Amelio P., 1886. Dipinti Murali di Pompei.  Naples: Richter. Pl. XVII.
Schefold said that this was how the severely destroyed west wall would have looked, except that the Hermaphrodite and Silenus painting would have been seen in the centre, and not the cupids.
