Pompeian-style paintings that decorated the walls of rooms in the domus.

These Pompeian-style paintings decorated the walls of two rooms of the aristocratic domus. The style is very simple and is the same for both rooms. There is a painted socle which imitates marble and above it a number of squares are traced out with lines separated by a thick band. Above these squares there is a coloured frieze which reaches the ceiling. The differences between one room and another lie in the range of colours, and that one of them has a floral motif in the thick band that separates the squares and lines.
