1st—4th cent. CE.

Ostia, Archaeological Park “Ostia Antica”, V, 2, 8
(Parco Archeologico di Ostia Antica, V, 2, 8).

A rich adaptation of the III—IV cent. AD of a II cent. AD house. The porch-like entrance leads into a colonnated courtyard where the statue of Fortuna Annonaria is located. In the west rooms the three arched frontage is of particular interest for the small pilasters with a cushion-like bases of the capitals. To the left is the fountain room with a niched apse at the back. To the east two rooms with decorated floors.
