Caption: Roman frescoes, Herculaneum. These wall paintings were found on the wall of the House of the Black Hall, a Roman villa in the ancient Italian town. The fresco depicts several amphorae, round- bottomed ceramic vases which were used as a unit of measurement for wine. Herculaneum was destroyed in the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 AD. However, the thick layer of volcanic ash that buried the town preserved buildings, bodies and other artefacts.
