the triclinium of the house it has
been found in fragments, then recomposed, a fresco of a garden
that shows a luxuriant vegetation
reproduced with minute care, in which fly every type of birds;
aloft a round oscillum of
marble is suspended.
oscillum are big circles in
marble, that were hung to oscillate and to be visible from both
the sides; very used in the ornamentation, they were
decorated with reliefs figures. Many have been found in Pompeii,
most of Dionysiac subject; a variation is the oscillum
of pelta form or crescent, that was the preferred shield of the Amazons
and Dionysus, adorned with reliefs
or with griffons heads.
