The House of the Centenary


House of the Centenary

The erotic paintings of the ancient Vesuvian city are among the most original finds of Roman civilization. The House of the Centenary (IX, 8, 6) has a particular small room: a wonderfully frescoed cubiculum with erotic pictures in the middle of the walls. Like, for example, the one who portrays a pair of lovers on a luxurious bed: he is completely naked, she is wearing a bra (strophium) and jewels on her arm and ankles.
