House Of The Faun - Review
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.
