Caption: Roman fresco. Excavated fresco in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii in southern Italy. This fresco is located on Via dell'Abbondanza, in the centre of the city. In the first century AD Pompeii was a flourishing coastal resort populated by wealthy Romans. It was decimated in AD 79 by an eruption of Mount Vesuvius that covered the city in wet ashes and cinders. Many buildings and other structures were well preserved and have been revealed by a series of excavations.
