Roman fresco of a rabbit and four figs. This fresco, from Herculaneum, 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.
