137 132 Alla ricerca di Iside, Naples 1992. 133 Caylus I (1752) 42‒43: “Les petites femmes en l’air et les Centaures [from the Villa of Cicero] seront toujours très-agréables, et j’avoue que je n’aurais pas placé dans un ouvrage de cette importance, et surtout dans le premier volume, des prétendues architectures, qui ne sont que des arabesques des plus mauvais et qu’on ne peut regarder que comme des opérations chinoises.

Guzzo in Mols/Moormann 2005, 331‒333. 64 D’Onofri 1789, CV: “Fu trovato una volta negli scavi un Satiro di bronzo dell’altezza di tre palmi, in atto con una capra sì sconscio e brutto, ch’egli è bello il tacere, e gli fu portato in Napoli a vedere: avendolo il Re osservato, subito ben chiuso lo rimandò in Portici a D. Giuseppe Canart, con ordine di non farlo vedere a nessuno; e quando poi col medesimo s’incontro gli domandò anzioso, se aveva subito ricevuto il Satiro, e gli soggiunse: ‘Il mio confessore mi ha detto, che quel gruppo è degno di essere posto ben bene in un mortajo; onde ti raccomando a non farlo vedere:’ e non volle affatto, che fosse situato fra le cose nel Museo a vista di tutto.

The Bourbon Explorations at Pompeii and Stabiae 29 the Doric order, laid out on a triangular open space, soon called Foro Triangolare. 92 Adjacent to it a courtyard and two theaters were found. Small rooms flanking the courtyard (which must have served as foyers for the theater guests and as training grounds for youth) contained skeletons of chained persons, probably slaves, and bronze helmets adorned with sumptuous relief and apparently used in parades and gladiator fights in the amphitheater.
