Regio VIII

Via dell'Abbondanza


The Via dell'Abbondanza is Pompeii's lower Decumanus. Its name derives from a bas-relief that decorates a fountain located in the initial section close to the Forum.


This long street connects the main points of the city located between the Forum and the Sarno Gate: the Forum itself, the Stabian Baths, the Theaters, the Temple of Isis and the Amphitheater. The street is the deliberate result of the city's urbanistic rationalization. Unearthed only at the beginning of this century, it is still rich with decorations, so that it represents for visitors the most suggestive trip in the ruins. Along this street we find many of the most beautiful houses, some having two-stories, where the rich Pompeian merchant middle-class lived: the House of the Cryptoportico, the House of Paquius Proculus, the House of the Chaste Lovers, the House of Gaius Julius Polybius, the House of Loreius Tiburtinus, the  House of Venus in the Shell and the House of Julia Felix.
