In their surviving state they represent the urban development of the 2nd and 1st centuries BC, stimulated by the influx of foreign merchants. They conform to a characteristic ancient Greek house plan with a central courtyard surrounded by various rooms. In the most opulent hou…

    Description:

    Herculaneum offers some valuable evidence for the study of the development of Roman domestic architecture. The buildings at the site are grouped in blocks (insulae), defined by the intersection of the east-west (cardi) and north-south (decumani) streets. The second house in insula II got its name from a fresco of Argus and Io which once adorned a reception room off…

    One of the larger villas in foreground, road in background.

    Description:

    In Pompeii one of the most famous of the luxurious residences, a domus rather than a villa, is the so-called “House of the Vettii.” Perpendicular to the entrance axis was a daylit peristyle of fluted Doric columns surrounded on all sides by a richly frescoed portico, with the more formal spaces opening onto it.

    Description:

    In Pompeii one of the most famous of the luxurious residences, a domus rather than a villa, is the so-called “House of the Vettii”. Its careful excavation has preserved almost all of the wall frescos, which were completed following the earthquake of 62 CE, in the manner art historians term the “Pompeiian Fourth Style.”
