Regio I

House of the Golden Bracelet


In the triclinium of the house it has been found in fragments, then recomposed, a fresco of a garden that shows a luxuriant vegetation reproduced with minute care, in which fly every type of birds; aloft a round oscillum of marble is suspended.


The oscillum are big circles in marble, that were hung to oscillate and to be visible from both the sides; very used in the ornamentation, they were decorated with reliefs figures. Many have been found in Pompeii, most of Dionysiac subject; a variation is the oscillum of pelta form or crescent, that was the preferred shield of the Amazons and Dionysus, adorned with reliefs or with griffons heads.
