  • The colors around the patio are well preserved. A beautiful carved slab on the right as you enter
  • The house of the Relief of Telephus in Herculaneum is a house from the Roman era. It was buried during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 and brought to light following the archaeological excavations of ancient Herculaneum in the early twentieth century. It is called this way because the high relief depicting the myth of Telephus was found. This house probably belonged to Marco Nonio Balbo. During the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 it was buried under a blanket of mud and was brought to light only two thousand years later by excavations conducted by Amedeo Maiuri. With its eighteen hundred square meters, the house is the second largest in Herculaneum after the Albergo house and is located near the Suburban Baths.
