Domus del Ninfeo (c. 325-350 AD)
House of the Shrine Dedicated to Nymphs

Three very high and wide windows, separated by marble columns supporting brick arches adorn the front of an ornate room. The floor was decorated with polychrome opus sectile (stone inlay creating pictures and patterns) of high quality. The lower part of the walls was lined with marble. The upper walls have remains of paintings.
