The House of the Faun (Italian: Casa del Fauno), was built in the 2nd century BC. It was a large private home in Pompeii, Italy. It has many great works of art. It is a fancy aristocratic house from the Roman Republic. The house shows the time period better than most archaeological things in Rome itself.[1]
