Caption: Roman fresco, from the House of Red Deers (Casa dei Cervi), Herculaneum, 45-79 AD. This detail of part of the fresco shows assorted foods, a glass dish and a glass vessel, and also gold and silver coins inserted in the fruit. This fresco is displayed in the Archaeological Museum of Naples, Italy. 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 that were later excavated.
