Description
A fresco with squares and diamonds in green, blue, red, and yellow adorns one of the walls in the so-called Commandant's Headquarters. This is one of several frescos returned to the building following preservation. The black line indicates that below the line were the original standing walls. The stones above the line are the archaeological reconstruction. Frescoes are painted on plaster.
