IV.21, Herculaneum, September 2019. Room 15, looking north towards garden area, from Cryptoporticus 30.

Maiuri wrote that the south quarters between the garden and the terraces opening upon the view of the shore and the gulf, were still even more sumptuous, though less well preserved. In the centre was a room that served as a summer triclinium and oecus, unfortunately only a small part of the flooring in opus sectile escaped the sacking of the cuniculi, and little remains of the decoration (a still-life and a mythological or tragic painting on the corner pilaster.
This room is flanked by two beautiful smaller ones, with windows looking onto the garden, and with marble flooring.
In the middle of the loggia is a pergola with four pilasters, and on either side there is a room for repose and for the siesta (diaetae); one of these [Diaeta 23] had superb remains of an opus sectile floor. Beyond these rooms was an uncovered terrace (solarium).
