The statues of the goddess found close to the Temple of Apollo, were transferred to the Archaeological Museum of Naples;

The Lupanar (from Lupo meaning wolf, because “wolf” in Latin means “prostitute”) , the only building in Pompeii built specifically for this purpose. The brothel, located in the ruins of Pompeii, was distributed on two floors, each one reserved for a certain type of customer;
The House of the Faun, a huge complex with rooms, environments and areas dedicated to different tasks whose structure has been called the “House of the Faun” for the bronze statue of the dancing faun, who was at the center of one of the main halls;
