of the Centenary
It’s so call because it was dug in the 18thcentenary 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
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.
