V 1,18 Casa degli Epigrammi greci, Room l
Thomas Staub Page updated: 2016-10-24
DESCRIPTION
This room might have served as a triclinium or some other kind of reception room. It has a large doorway towards the peristyle and a smaller one, maybe for serving purposes, in its south wall towards corridor h. Since most of the walls are still covered by plaster, the building material and technique is only ascertainable on smaller areas. It seems, that the most of the walls are constructed of opus incertum, containing quite mixed materials. The doorframes are made of either smaller regular blocks of tuffa stone or in opus vittatum mixtum. When excavated, the wall paintings of the Fourth Style were still quite well preserved and thus partly cut out and taken to the National Museum in Naples. The floor consists of lavapesta with inserted pieces of travertine and at least today only in the centre part pieces of coloured marble. Both thresholds are made of travertine, the one in the opening towards the peristyle along the entire opening and the one towards the corridor consisting of two side plates with the floor covering in between.
