Regio IX

House of the Centenary


It’s so call because it was dug in the 18th centenary of the eruption (1879). It’s a very complex building, the property of Aulus Rustius Verus, probably resultant by the fusion of three independent residences. It has two atria that formed the front part of the house; beyond it lie a tablinium and a peristyle, the front wing of it forms a loggia. In the garden was found the celebrated statuette of a Satyr with wine-skin (National Archaeological Museum of Naples), a fountain and a marble statue of Hermaphrodite. Notable is the white background of the room (oecus) opening under the portico of the peristyle and the decoration of the adjcent room, on a black background.
