A view of a bedroom (cubiculum) that is near the atrium of the House of the Ephebe at Pompeii.  Note the not-too-common arched ceiling.  The frescos are in the "fourth style" of frescoes that have been identified at Pompeii.  This house was remodeled after the earthquake of AD 62 and thus was not too old when Vesuvius erupted in AD 79.

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.
