Maiuri wrote – “The form of the tablinum is curious, closed at the end, with partitions of pilasters and windows above the pilasters; the result is three aisles, a wider and higher one in the centre flanked by two minor lower ones on either side, which constitute almost the plan of a basilica in embryo.”
See Maiuri, Amedeo, (1977). Herculaneum. 7th English ed, of Guide books to the Museums Galleries and Monuments of Italy, No.53 (p.27).

According to Wallace-Hadrill and Guidobaldi, the tablinum was transformed into an oecus Aegyptius.
