VII.2.20 Pompeii. c.1930. Looking north from emblema in centre of tablinum O1, across atrium towards entrance doorway.
According to Blake –
The atrium was later than the tablinum and belonged to the period of wall decorations in the Second Style. (p.61).
A similar cancellum, (in colours) though much restored, forms an attractive centre for the tablinum. The pavements of this house fall into two groups.
Those of the tablinum and the room behind it, and those to the right and left of these two are of finer tesserae (0.05cms to 0.08cms by 0.05cms to 0.06cms deep) and seems to be at a slightly lower level than the atrium. And yet the lithostroton of the atrium, with its pieces of coloured limestone (such pieces of marble as occur are in patches), and the alae with their thresholds of the Greek meander in which every square is different, cannot be later than the period of Augustus. Walls of a later transformation actually rest on the meander borders, (p.74).
See Blake, M., (1930). The pavements of the Roman Buildings of the Republic and Early Empire. Rome, MAAR, 8, (p.61 & 74, & pl.17, tav.4).
