Another section. The mosaics were still intact - amazing workmanship.




A portion of an original fresco in a house.




Can you guess what this is? It's a public latrine.




Here's the other side. Hike up your toga and have a seat!




A cafe ("thermopolium") near the city center. The street is through the large door way. The bar is in the center of the picture, with a large amphora at the edge. You can see the arched opening in the front and some storage cabinets behind it.
