Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

A gracious villa on the Via Dell'Abbondanza – street of abundance – in Pompeii, and fronted by great bronze doors, the House of Loreius Tiburtinus is also sometimes called the House of Octavius Quartio.

This house stands out for its extensive gardens and excellent, well preserved artwork.  Conveniently located – the street that was closed to cart traffic in ancient times – and boasting well decorated rooms, many guests must have passed through.

The gardens have fountains at their centers, with many frescoes and statuettes around.
