018 Italy - Rome - Ostia Antica

Caseggiato del Termopolio (c. 117 AD)
The House of the Bar

At the entrance is an L-shaped marble bar counter, with a water basin in the lower part of both sides. Behind the counter are three stepped shelves. A marble side-table was set against the central part of the wall. Above the table are three stepped shelves and a painting in which food and perhaps other objects related to the bar are depicted. In the foreground is a stove for heating water or for cooking.
