III.16, Herculaneum. Sacred landscape from upper or centre of south wall in corridor 6.  Now in Naples Archaeological Museum. Inventory number 9419, found 18th March 1763.
According to Guidobaldi and Esposito, two of these panels were painted on the upper walls in corridor 6.  The one above from the south wall was taken to the Naples Museum, the other left in situ on the north wall also depicted a sacred landscape.  This shows a few figures approaching a rural sanctuary with a small temple.  On the left of the temple is a circular tower, in front of the tower is a statue, perhaps Priapus.  On the left of the circular tower is a tree, and a pedestal with a metal vase on top.  A larger tree can be seen on the right of the painted panel.
