VI.17.42 Pompeii. May 2006. Summer triclinium 31, ornate marble water triclinium. Water fell down the steps of the apsed fountain and then produced a jet in the pool in the centre of the couches. This then emptied into the pool in the garden below. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p. 166).

According to Wilhelmina, “At the west end of the garden was a slightly raised narrow bed, at the rear of which was a row of 28 small root cavities. The cavities along the south wall were badly damaged, but symmetry suggested that they were vines, and they covered each wall. The largest cavity in the garden, apparently that of a tree or perhaps an oleander, was in the south-west rectangular bed.”

According to Ciardiello, “An exceptional find happened in 1983 during some work in the garden. A large quantity of painted fragments belonging to a previous decoration of an upper floor room were found. Also found during this excavation, were a series of terracotta plaques with reliefs with traces of colours, decorated with gods, circles and cupids which had belonged to an architectural frieze. They had been reused in the west perimeter wall, partly as the wall covering, in part as a wall ornament in the garden and partly as a cover for the waste channel. They would have formed the decoration of a sacred building and would have shaped a frieze depicting the myth of Apollo and Marsyas.” 
See Aoyagi M. and Pappalardo U., 2006. Pompei (Regiones VI-VII) Insula Occidentalis. Napoli: Valtrend. (p.75-7), chapter by Rosaria Ciardiello, on The House of the Golden Bracelet.
Note: 16, on p.76 says that Menotti De Lucia thought they had come from a suburban sanctary dedicated to Dionysus, whereas De Caro thought they were from the Temple of Apollo.
