House of the Golden cupids

Interesting
Its owner undoubtedly lived under Nero and loved the theatre... although the small gilded glass and gold Cupids have sadly deteriorated, the whole ensemble with a peristyle with one wing raised like a stage, is well preserved. Between the peristyle and the atrium, set into a wall there is an obsidian mirror. Further down the street in the House of the Ara massima, there are well-preserved trompe-l'oeil paintings
