The interior of the so-called College of the Augustales in Herculaneum. The building has often been associated with the presence of the imperial cult in Herculaneum, but it might just as well be a meeting place for the town council, the local Curia or Senate House. It is richly decorated with fourth styles frescoes depicting scenes from the life of Hercules.
