Peaches And A Glass Jug, Roman Fresco
Photograph - Photograph
Roman fresco of peaches and a glass jug, from the House of Red Deers (Casa dei Cervi), Herculaneum, 45-79 AD. This fresco 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.
