View of one of the dining rooms (triclinia) in the House of the Ephebe at Pompeii.  Note the frescos on the wall, the cut stone floor (very expensive), and the reconstructed "beds" for reclining on when dining.

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.
