Regio VI

House of Narcissus or Maxim Altar


The house belonged to a man of the middle/low class. The owner of the residence, or at least its inhabitant, it remains anonymous; even his profession or type of activity that took place in his shop have not been elucidated, despite the presence of a large number of bronze instruments and an unusual bronze table with Egyptian sphinx crouching at the base of support.
What remains of the perimeter wall of the house is dated around the Third century B.C., but inside the house you can imagine the presence of older structures, without any precise data on their types and sizes.
The paintings on the walls are largely preserved.
