Cubicle with Erotic Scene

Cubicle with Erotic Scene, Villa Romana del Casale

Since I usually play by the rules and didn’t take pictures, I am sharing some images available on the internet though I also bought one of the guidebooks to this amazing place. Naturally, the image that comes up on the internet the most is this one. The walls in this section still have their geometric frescoes intact so you get an idea of what the room might have looked like. This probably depicts a Bacchanal that got so rowdy that they were eventually banned by the Roman Senate in 186 BCE.
