III.11 Herculaneum, September 2016. Statuette of Atthis, (centre). Photo courtesy of Michael Binns.
According to a photo on page 58 of Maiuri’s book, this statuette was photographed in front of a table, near the north wall of room 2.
The wording on page 59 suggests that this table was actually found in an upper room of the house.
“E per quanto la casa fosse stata abilmente frugata con cuniculi e gallerie per ogni lato, era miracolosamente sfuggita ai ricercatori borbonici, da un ambiente del piano superiore, una preziosa mensa in marmo epirota (molossium), sostenuta da un trapezoforo effigiato in forma di Atthis, il piu bello esempio che si abbia di tal genere di mense figurate, fra quante ce ne ha restituite il sottosuolo di Pompei.”
(trans: And so far as the house had been ably ransacked with tunnels and galleries on each side, found from an upper-floor room was a precious table in Epirote marble (Molossium), supported by a single table support in the image of Atthis, which had miraculously escaped the Bourbon searchers - the most beautiful example that you have of this kind of genere of figured table, among the many we have recovered from the underground of Pompeii.)
