House of the faun


This is one of the larger houses in Pompeii. The house has been excavated quite early and it's treasures were transported to Naples. In the Museo archaeologic Napoli you can find the beautiful mosaic of Alexander the great and Darius as well as the faun the house is named to. Here you can see the copies. When in the atrium (near the faun) try and imagine the place had a roof and not an open plain as it seem now.
