At the rear of the staircase, the latrine on the mezzanine level can be seen.

Maiuri wrote that the upper rooms were divided into three rooms, by halving the one corresponding to the one above the shop-room, and adding to the front part, with the aid of the area of the room overhanging the street frontage.  Of the decoration of the room outside towards the street frontage, there remains only one painting on the west wall.  Of the decoration of the innermost room, illuminated by a square window and of two circular ones, one painting was recovered intact from the north wall, a beautiful picture of cupids recessed within a wooden frame.
