The garden of this house is embellished with large fountain decorated with coloured mosaics and compositions made of glass paste tiles. Rows of shell running all round the nymphaeum form a highly original decoration which is completed by two large theatrical masks embedded in the bases of two columns. The water for the fountain flowed through a hole in the middle of the apse and fell over a flight of marble steps, creating an impressive effect, before being collected in a small pool decorated with a bronze statue of a cupid carrying a dolphin on his back. The statues on display here are copies. The garden of the adjoining house, called the House of the Small Fountain, has large landscape paintings and a smaller fountain with decorations very similar to the ones in the previous house. Here the water flows out from a marble mask of Silenus.
