  • Just very close to the Thermopolium or Terme del Foro, or again in english, Forum Baths, we suddenly stumbled at this old roman house, somehow poetically named, that is, the House of the tragic poet. ...  more »
  • 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.

  • Very impressive mosaic work of a vivid (guarding) dog. A true art piece!
  • 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.
  • this was pretty... TRAGIC
  • 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.
