V 1,26 Casa di Caecilius Iucundus - South House, Room f
A. Karivieri & R. Forsell Page updated: 2009-01-14
DESCRIPTION
The small rectangular room, measuring 3.95 by 1.95 m., has a 1.26 m wide door opening to the atrium in the north. The doorposts are made of large Sarno limestone blocks. It has an Apennine limestone threshold. The lintel block is missing. The walls are built in opus incertum.
Several layers of wall plaster can be seen on the walls. However, of the latest phase only the plaster coating remains. On the west and northwestern walls, a white wall painting belonging to an earlier phase of decoration can be seen behind the coating. At the floor level along the southern wall, there are remains of a black wall painting also from an earlier decoration phase.

The room has remains of several different floor levels. Of the latest, a lavapesta floor almost nothing remains. An earlier cocciopesto floor had randomly placed white tesserae and in the northwestern corner, a decoration of a six-petalled flower within a circle and a square is still preserved.

There is a niche in the south wall. In the northeastern corner, remains of a foundation for a staircase have been preserved. This foundation is higher in its western part, adjacent to the entrance of the room.
