III.3 Herculaneum. May 2010. Looking south from atrium.
The corridor leading to the southerly rooms is left of centre, then there would have been steps to an upper floor, and a doorway to a cubiculum, on right.
According to Maiuri, it was possible that the entire south wing, connected to the atrium by a corridor, was a later addition to the original house.
