  • Cave canem! He says the mosaic in the entrance of the House, where a furious dog out alerting visitors. That is the greater grace of the House of the poet. Everything is seen from the outside because it is covered by a glass. Nice House.

  • The House which retains the traditional form of a House with atrium is famous for the mosaic with the inscription CAVE CANEM (beware of the dog) placed at the main entrance and now protected by a pane of glass.

  • Today, this facility was closed. However it can be on the floor the image of the dog, excellent.

  • Very impressive mosaic work of a vivid (guarding) dog. A true art piece!
  • this was pretty... TRAGIC
  • Specifically for March 2015, this was closed during regular hours meaning that only the (replica of the) famous "beware of dog" mosaic could be viewed behind a gate.
  • It was so interesting!
  • Flore Famous Dog in JOJO's BIZARRE ADVENTURE. And real dog. Guide it to said this is a picture of a dog bed and whew I. Later, with help of Jojo's bizarre adventure manga mania, I was surprised. Dogs are important in Pompeii. Had a real dog.
