Regio I

House of the Ephebe


This is the typical house of the middle-class. It is the result of an aggregation of two houses with three entrance doors.


At the center of  the floor there is an emblem made of polychromatic marble inlays and glass pastes (opus sectile). The masonry counter of the triclinium is decorated with paintings portraying Mars and Venus with a castellum aquæ. During the summer, meals were served in another dining-room (triclinium) located in the garden under a pergola and near a fountain. The House of the Ephebe is named after the classical bronze statue (National Archaeological Museum in Naples) adapted to a lamp-holder (Efebus  lampadophoros) was founded in the house.
