House of the Faun

      Immediately in front of the entrance to this villa is a Latin welcome sign, "HAVE," a simple mosaic in the sidewalk. Covering 6 acres, the House of the Faun is one of the largest and most luxurious examples of a first century residence. The villa was named for the bronze statuette of a dancing faun (a mythological creature), the reproduction of which is seen here in the impluvium. Mount Vesuvius can be seen in the background.
