House of the Fabius AmandusHouse of the Fabius Amandus is located on the south side of Via delle Abbondanza just east of Vicolo di Paquius Proculus street. House Fabia Amandusa is a small but cozy private house. Despite his small size, it has a small indoor home garden. The facade of the building of the House of the Fabius Amandus is still preserved. Part of the original plaster preserved, but in poor condition. The house was first excavated in the early 1920s. A western doorway in the hallway of the house gives access to a small room (s), which lay under the stairs, which led from the atrium (b) to the upper floor. The house apparently belonged to the weaver as a lot of carding combs were found here.

 

House of the Fabius AmandusCorridor (a) (in the photo on the right) is decorated with frescoes in the fourth style with black panels on a yellow background above the bottom red frieze. The corridor has a door on the right side that leads to the small room (c) under the stairs. Guests immediately entered the square atrium - the living room (b), which has an indoor pool in its center. The atrium, which leads to rooms on the north and south sides only, is decorated with frescoes in the fourth style with red panels on a yellow background, separated by architectural views located above the lower red frieze. In the center of the red panels are small landscapes.

 

The room (d) in the northeast corner of the atrium is also decorated with fourth-style frescoes. The room has an elegant mosaic floor with a central decorative panel. Room (e) in the southeast corner of the atrium is probably a cubic base, that is, the office of the owner of the house. On its western side there is a window overlooking a small garden (f) (pictured above). The garden area comes out of the living room through the central doorway. A low wall separates the atrium from the garden, which acts as a source of light for both the atrium and rooms in the south. The garden area of ​​the House of the Fabius Amandus is also decorated with frescoes in the fourth style with garden landscapes above the low black frieze. Three more rooms and a second staircase to the upper floor exit the garden.
