VII.2.20 Pompeii. c.1930. Looking north from room (13) behind tablinum towards atrium and entrance doorway. 
According to Blake –
We will make the one black and white mosaic in the group of coloured pavements of VII.2.20 which we have assigned to the pre-Roman period, our point of departure for this study.
In the room behind the tablinum, is a simple design in squares and triangles, which became exceedingly popular during the first century BC.

VII.2.20 Pompeii. c.1930. Room 14, mosaic flooring.
According to Blake –
This photo, showing a partially destroyed mosaic is published not so much for its intrinsic value, as from the desire to preserve a record of it.  
The border is now completely lost. (p.12).
In the room at the left (of the tablinum), oblique rows in different colours once made a neat border. (pl.46, fig.1) for the centre now lost. (p.75).
