This elegant dwelling belonged to the nephew of Sulla (a man of considerable political cloud in the city). With a primary Tuscan atrium and a secondary Hellenistic one, it once also housed a mosaic that has now been transferred to the museum at Naples: the Battle of Alexander, showing the conqueror about to land a decisive blow to his enemy. Classically Roman, the house gets its name from the small bronze dancing faun found here. There is also an Ionic colonnade, much decorated with mosaics, and a Doric colonnade in the garden.

Home of a lot of the famous mosaics that are now in the national museum in Naples.
Largest house in Pompeii with famous Alexander Mural
One of the more interesting villas
Casa del Fauno (the House of the Faun), built during the 2nd century BC, was one of the largest and most impressive private residences in Pompeii. It was named for the bronze statue of the dancing faun. Most beautiful little statue, a must see in Pompeii. Highly recommended.The House of the Faun also contained the Alexander Mosaic, now in Naples museum, depicting the Battle of Issus in 333 BC between Alexander the Great and Darius III of Persia._
