Figures were seen in the rectangular panels above the middle zone of the walls.

These were not easily discernable because of the poor conservation, but stood out reasonably well on the west wall.

IX.1.22 Pompeii. December 2007. Room 25, west wall of room in north-east corner of peristyle. Starting from the left the figures seen in the small rectangular panels would have been –
a) A man, walking half to the left and half towards the viewer. He was naked, but held a robe with both hands which fell from behind the lower part of his body, and was visible between his legs. Each of his hands held a border. 
b) Two wrestlers who could be named Hercules and Antaeus. The one on the right had embraced the opponent from behind and held him up high resting him on the thigh – but  it was not possible to distinguish whether it was on the right or left. This one painfully took with the left hand the left arm of his conqueror. 
c) A naked man, who put the stretched left leg towards the right, whilst the right leg was curved behind. The right arm was stretched from the shoulder towards the right, and it seemed as if his hand was disproportionately large, as if armed with a boxing-glove. Probably here one recognised a boxer.
d) Very faded. I seem to recognise a standing figure turned to the left, which could have been a boxer, corresponding to figure c).
e) A female figures in long robe. It seemed that the head was seen faced forward but that the rest of her moved towards the right; with her right hand extended from which hung an object, not recognisable. The left hand held a long stick, either a spear or a sceptre, from the top of which, a line nearly horizontal stretched above her head.
f) A man, walking quickly half to the right, half towards the viewer, with the curved right leg put forward. Holding a shepherd’s crook in his right hand, with the curved part up, whilst near to the right shoulder as if leaning on it, was a high and narrow object, but not definable.

f) A man, walking quickly half to the right, half towards the viewer, with the curved right leg put forward. Holding a shepherd’s crook towards the right (in his left hand), with the curved part up, whilst near to the right shoulder as if leaning on it, was a high and narrow object, but not definable.

According to PPM,

e) was described as being on the west wall in the central area, details of the ashlar in relief, with the figure of a Muse with a lyre raised towards the right.

f) was described as being on the north end of the west wall, details of the ashlar in relief, with the figure of a Satyr (?) dancing with his right hand raised, in a similar pose to the bronze statuette of the House of the Faun, and with a shepherd’s crook in the left hand.
