  House of the Faun
by sargentjeff

Favorite thing: Named simply for the little statue found inside, the House of the Faun is one of the largest Villas, and certainly one of the most extravagant. Villas in Pompei were basically constructed with the same type of features. Just like we have kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms, back yard, and if your wealthy, servant quarters.

Pompei villas has other features, which we no longer need in our homes today. These include areas to collect rain water and portions used as a shop, or store for selling wares to the public.
