VII.7.5 Pompeii. September 2015. 
Looking across east side of atrium towards rooms (m), (n) and (o) on east side of peristyle and (q) and (r) in north-east corner.
According to Garcia y Garcia, this house had a beautiful marble impluvium in the centre of its atrium.
On the night of 24th August 1943, a bomb fell causing grave damage to this house.
It destroyed a part of the floor of the atrium and a good proportion of the rooms to the east and north-east of the peristyle.
Also destroyed was a part of the south and west of the portico, comprising of two columns with painted stucco.
The perimeter wall on the west, and three rooms on the north also fell, with the ruin of the best part of the painted fourth style plaster.
In the winter triclinium (n) on the east side of the peristyle, two important paintings that decorated it, were partially destroyed.
They were of Tryptolemus and the other of Venus, they have been restored in part. 
Tryptolemus was shown receiving the ears of corn from Proserpine.
Venus was shown arriving carried by a triton, with a cupid assisting her to descend to the shore.
A young woman was shown receiving her and making an offering upon a garlanded altar.
On the night of 13th September, this house linked to VII.7.2 was again hit by another bomb.
