The House of Marcus Lucretius in Pompeii

View of the raised garden of the House of Marcus Lucretius in Pompeii. The garden features an elegant fountain supplied by a jet of water that gushed from a statue of Silenus. The house is named after a small painting in which writing instruments are represented, including a letter addressed to Marcus Lucretius, decurion of Pompeii and priest of Mars.
