The Building of Eumachia, Pompeii: 2 reviews and 3 photos

 
 

Fulling (the process of cleaning and dyeing cloth) was one of Pompeii's chief industries. Eumachia was a very wealthy priestess of Venus and donated this building to the Fullers.
The building was originally decorated with a beautiful, carved facade but all that remains of this after the earthquake is what surrounds the entrance.

Directions: On the eastern side of the Forum, after the Temple of Vespasian heading south.
