The House of Apollo, or Domus M. Herenulli Communis, is located at Pompeii 6.7.23. and was excavated in the 1830s.
This large house comprised a central atrium, tablinum, triclinium, kitchen, garden, summer triclinium and a garden cubiculum. Nothing survives of the second storey.
Decorated plaster walls, in varying conditions, can be found in many parts of the complex; however, the study focuses on a fresco located in the garden cubiculum.
This room contains reasonably well preserved mythological scenes of Apollo integrated into fourth-style designs. To date, we have concentrated on the populated, architectural facade presented on the short, west wall.
