CASA del CITARISTA — RIGHT: VIEW from room 18 looking into peristyle 17 with its pool and suggestion of landscaping.

This early morning view is indicated as the summer triclinium and shows the relationship of the open room to the peristyle garden. Note the landscape frescoes lining the inside of the entablature of the peristyle colonnade. The location of the frescoes was proposed recently by Valeria Sampaolo. Landscape frieze: MANN 9496, 9610, 9606
