Water pipes connected this basin with the bathing com- plex nos. A ine bronze statuette of a satyr with a wineskin, now in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli, once served as a fountain decoration in the peristyle Nearby was added a large nymphaeum fountain-house no.
Adorning various rooms of the house were a number of hird and Fourth Style wall paintings, which are for the most part now badly faded, but known in nineteenth-century reconstructions A few wall paintings are still well preserved, like the depiction of the wine-god Bacchus from the lararium, or shrine for the wor- ship of the Lares and Penates, the gods of the household and pantry. Now in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli37, the painting shows Bacchus, the god of wine, enveloped in a cluster of grapes, with a steep conical Mt.

See also Dickmann , See also now computer-generated models for this part of the house: Coralini — Vecchietti De Caro , For an excellent color photo of the satyr: Of this room was the apodyterium, or dressing room no.
In the frigidarium, oppo- site the apodyterium, is a large, deep, cold water tub alveus that extended the full length of the south wall of the frigidarium By means of a now missing light of stairs in the corner of the apodyterium, one could enter directly into the small tepi- darium, or warm room, of the baths no. Unlike the other rooms of the bath, the tepidarium and caldarium are fairly well preserved, including even the columnar suspensurae, or supports, of a hypocaust system that raised the loor of these two rooms higher than that of the apodyterium.
In this way, hot air from the praefurnium, or furnace hole no. As part of the ancient remod- eling that took place in the last phase of the house, three large panel paintings were inserted into the centers of each of the three principal walls of the room, in accor- dance with the latest fashion in wall styles, that of Fourth Style Across from the triclinium was a small square room no.

Although moderns pride themselves on not indulging in such dining practices, this tradition is preserved in the binge-drinking bouts that still go on today at colleges and universities. For the problem in naming rooms in a Roman house, see Allison , esp. On the wall directly opposite the entrance in antechamber room to room 43 ig.
On the side wall of the antechamber is the third panel, which is damaged, but the subject of which is clear; namely Cassandra, who spurned the love of the god Apollo ig.

For this painting, see also below. As in the antechamber, the sub- ject of the panel painting decorating the center of the main wall of room 43, directly across from the doorway between the two rooms, is mythologi- cal. Dominating the center of both side walls Fig.
Such scenes are not conined to bedrooms, but are found in various Fig. For example, the lovemaking scene from the House of Philippopolis, Shahba Caecilius Iucundus mentioned above ig.
Interestingly, this painting has been attributed to the same artist as the three panel paintings in room It has also been argued that room 43 was not dedicated to lovemaking because the subject of the painting on the principal wall of this room is not one of copulation, but 59 PPM IX, f.
Aristides, Pausias, and Nicophanes.
To be sure, the depiction of Hercules is hardly salacious, but the implied sexual imagery in this painting is quite poi- gnant. First, a penetrating male who would have used this room might have seen him- self as a Hercules in bed.
Secondly, and more importantly, the moral of the story here seems to be that even the mighty Hercules could be conquered in the end by love — and more than once — hence, Amorini rather than a single Amorino. His recumbent club, an instrument of power, signiies that its owner has now been subdued and dis- armed by love. In short, even the mighty Hercules is power- less when it comes to love. A similar notion is depicted in a particularly interesting — albeit fourth century C.
And last but 63 See Clarke , esp. Balty , 50—56 nos. Even in scenes not involving Hercules, as in the case of a symplegma on the back of a bronze mirror cover, the con- quest of love is signiied by the igure of Cupid extending a victory wreath over the copulating lovers Indicative of such activity is the small window next to the doorway between the antecham- ber 42 and room 43 igs. Earlier in the twenti- eth century, this small window had a wooden frame, now only partly pre- Fig.
In antiquity, this small window House of the Centenary, Pompeii Fig. Early descriptions of this house are very circumspect about the sexual nature Fig. In their rooms 42 and 43, House of the Centenary, discussion of one of the paintings from this room, neither Myerowitz , f. Still more light would have come from the large win- dow located high up on the wall of the antechamber, directly opposite the door to room 43 ig.
Furthermore, the small window between the antechamber and room 43 would not have served as a pass-through for food and drink for those within, since such refreshments would typically have been brought directly into the room, as in various representations of lovemak- ing activities In any case, with the windowsill being 1.
To peer through this claustellum, a person would have had to use some sort of footstool in the antechamber. Although the wooden frame inserted within the four sides of this opening is only partly preserved, with the rest of it being a modern restoration, I saw no evidence for ancient burning of any ancient wooden frame. Mau mentions the small window in passing, but does not postulate its usage, though he does interpret room 43 as a lovemaking room.
Moreover, the same viewing angle was employed Centenary, Pompeii by artists in a number of erotic scenes, including the two pendant panel paintings Fig. In the upper part Centenary, Pompeii of both lovemaking scenes are small painted squares that some scholars have inter- preted as parvae tabellae, which ancient authors indicate were hung on walls and represented various igurae Veneris, or sexual lovemaking positions In some Roman representa- 74 Interestingly, this is also a viewing angle commonly used in contemporary pornographic ilms.
Vita Horati On this subject, see further Clarke , — Strings, used for suspending the tabella on a nail, are also shown. However, in neither of the pen- dant erotic scenes in room 43 is there any evidence of folding-leaves or hanging-strings that would have made clear that the painted squares were meant to be parvae tabellae.

Furthermore, the bluish vertical space behind the woman in this erotic scene on the left wall would allude to the actual doorway leading back into the antecham- ber. Both these erotic panel paintings give new meaning to the notion of art relect- ing life and life relecting art.
See also Clarke , ig. It is important to point out that the small size of a window does not in itself indi- cate scopophilic activity. Two small window-like openings are found, for example, across from one another of room no. Moreover, the window-like openings at Oplontis were not used in a bedroom suite, nor are there any erotic paintings here. It is therefore unlikely that the openings served any voyeuristic purpose.
Windows of ground level rooms, like that in the lupanar, were often high up and small, with bars or grating to keep out thieves. Another room d of rather small size at the back of a caupona tavern on the Street of Mercury VI. In the south side of this same room, the other window was smaller and higher up on the wall ig. Perhaps the owner of this house operated this cau- Fig.
Neither of these windows have pona on the Street of been discussed, especially in terms of the function of the back room d of the cau- Mercury VI. Given Fig. Because of its size and accessibility to the adjoining tricli- num no.
Clarke does not mention these windows in either his or publications. I thank one of the anonymous readers of my manuscript for bringing the windows in this caupona to my attention. During some special banquets held in the triclinium, the owner of the house might have arranged for a peep-show involving domestic slaves or even a slave and an uninhibited guest interested in showing of his sexual prowess.
Of some relevance to this inter- pretation may be the subject of one of the three paintings that decorated the hird Style walls of the triclinium of the House of the Five Skeletons no.
All three have reference to the Trojan War. Directly beneath the window is an Amorino reading from a book scroll. However, as in the case of the room in the cau- pona, room R is not secluded, since it opens directly onto the peristyle F of the house Nevertheless, given the subject of love in the Fourth Style paintings dec- orating its wall, this room could very well have served for lovemaking activities.
Lorenz , 6. It is not clear if this window, which is surrounded by a modern wooden frame, was closable in antiquity. Such a window is used for a still dif- ferent purpose in another painting from a house in Pompeii IX.
Somewhat faded and now in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli ig. As noted above, the subject of Venus Piscatrix was also depicted in room 42 in the House of the Centenary and in the lovemaking room d at the back of the caupona on the Street of Mercury.
In the case of room 43 and its ante- chamber in the House of the Centenary, the fact that they are located in close proximity to rooms devoted to dining and bathing cannot have been coinciden- tal. For the Romans, baths, wine, and lovemaking all went together and were among Fig. In the public baths, people would bath in the nude, an Pompeii atmosphere that ofered prostitutes and others an excellent venue to advertise their bodies.
It is also in the context of the baths, namely in the apody- Warsaw for bringing this particular painting to my attention and for the reference to this article. Santucci ; Richardson , Keuls , f. Bathing and its accompanying pleasures could be enjoyed by the well-to-do in the comfort of their own homes, as in the case in the House of the Centenary, with its large bathing suite, triclinium no.
With all these special features, it is worth considering whether this section of the house might even have served as a sort of high-class brothel Caligula, in the context of taxing prostitutes, is said to have established on the Palatine Hill, where the imperial residence was located, a lupanar consisting of sev- eral small brothel-like cellae He then allegedly sent out pages to invite young and old men alike to frequent this new establishment, thereby taking the names of the clients so that they could be taxed Suetonius, Vita Caligulae Although we must , ; McGinn , Moreover, even with a second loor, this lupanar was not very large.
For the number of places in Pompeii for paid sex, including cellae meretriciae perhaps about 35 , and the costs, see Wallace-Hadrill , 52— See also McGinn , 8—11; Beard , — For the inscriptional evidence pertaining to erotica at Pompeii, see recently in general Varone See further Guzzo — Scarano Ussani , 8— See also Clarke , Clarke , with n. It is therefore doubtful that the owner of the House of the Centenary, who may have been one of the highest magis- trates of Pompeii i.
It is reasonable to conclude, then, that this sec- tion of the house was for the pleasure and leisure otium of the dominus and his close friends and select acquaintances, with some business being at least occasionally conducted on the side in this congenial atmosphere.
It cannot usually be established to what degree a dominus was involved in determining the layout of his home and selecting its pictorial and Fig. In the case of the House of the Centenary, however, Minotaur , House of the it is possible, even likely, that the master played a key role in these matters.
It is relevant, too, that three large Greek mythological panel paintings were added to the principal walls of the tri- clinium, in keeping with the latest trends in Fourth Style wall paintings Such a change would have relected the wishes of the dominus to be up-to-date in his decor.
