This house excavated between 1826 and 1827 is named after the mosaic fountain situated in the small viridarium at the end of the house. It is thought the owner was Helvius Vestalis and may have been the patron of the Fruiterers' Guild. Part of the house still retained the roof and paintings in that area were in good condition.There is a beautiful mosaic fountain on the back wall.
