V.11, Herculaneum. May 2004. Looking towards east wall of atrium. Photo courtesy of Nicolas Monteix.
According to Maiuri, this atrium showed the rare detail of the proof of the height of the compluvium.
Still preserved simmetrically on both the east and west walls, were the large square holes for the heavy support beams of the roof. 
Below these holes protrude square blocks of tufa forming a small shelf for each hole, to better support the weight of the two heavy beams, they almost formed a cubic capital by crowning the four pillars clamped in the wall to strengthen the weight of the compluvium.
