Last Supper in Pompeii

Hi, everyone. Yesterday, we attended this exhibit at the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco. It contained many artifacts that I did not see whilst actually in Pompeii. It was quite interesting. Here are a few photos for your enjoyment.

In order of appearance: a household shrine (lararium); a fresco showing Bacchus standing at the foot of pre-eruption Vesuvius; amphorae for olive oil or wine, an advertisement for garum from the House of Scaurus, as well as a relief of a man taking goods to market; sign for a tavern/gaming house called the Lucky Phoenix; fresco showing distribution of bread, as well as a carbonized loaf; a stove. All photos by the author.
