Roman fresco showing flower dealers. Cherubs represent the flower dealers, and the flowers are being carried in baskets over one cherub's shoulder and on the back of a goat. This fresco is from the triclinium (dining room) of the House of the Vettii in Pompeii, a Roman city located in the Bay of Naples, Italy. Pompeii was ruined and buried during an eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 AD. The city was rediscovered and excavated in the 18th and 19th centuries, and today it is a tourist destination visited by millions every year.
