View looking south at the north end of the eastern couch on which the diners would recline.  The fresco painting is still well preserved.  It appears to be a picture of a deity (Isis?) in a temple that is surrounded by a temenos wall.  In the front, a man is offering a sacrifice on an altar.  There appears to be another shrine on the right side of the painting and an obelisk on the left side.

The House of the Ephebus is also known as the House of P. Cornelius Tages.  It takes its name from a bronze statue of the ephebus that was found there.  It is located about seven blocks (insula) east of the Roman Forum.  It is a large "house" consisting of three houses that were merged into one!  Location: Regio (Region) I, Insula 7, Doors 10-12.
