House of the Bicentenary

Interesting
The excavation of this house was finally completed in 1938, two hundred years after the excavation of Herculaneum officially started, hence its name. The house is decorated with frescoes and a cross which is probably the oldest relic testifying to Christianity in the Roman Empire.
