Spiral columns

Spiral columns

Stabian “OTIA”
Spiral columns
The upper peristyle of Villa San Marco in Stabiae was annexed to the villa in the last years before the eruption. The originality of the portico was due, in addition to splendid mythological paintings, to the presence of stuccoed columns in the lower area and fluted with a spiral pattern in the upper part. These twisted columns collapsed with the 1980 earthquake, and today we can only admire a few remains under the reconstructed portico.
