(a) Numbering of Buildings in Pompeii

Pompeii, like Herculaneum, has been split into separate areas for archaeological purposes. The numbering in Herculaneum is less complex because of its size, being divided simply into Insulae or blocks of buildings (numbered in Roman numerals), with individual buildings having their own entrance number. For example, the House of the Deer is labelled (Ins IV, 3).

Pompeii, however, has an additional level of numbering. It has been divided firstly into 9 regions (Regio), numbered in Roman numerals. Each of these regions contains several Insulae which are numbered 1, 2 3, etc. As with Herculaneum, each building within an insula has its own entrance number, again numbered 1, 2, 3 etc. For example, the House of Trebius Valens is labelled (Reg III, Ins 2, 1).

(c) Notable Private Houses

Public buildings are treated here as distinct group of buildings and, as such, are given their own section on this site. Private houses, however, because of their number, have been grouped by region according to the above map. Each region (regio) has its own location plan, an expanded view showing the location of individual insulae and a table of those insulae featured in the site. Likewise each featured insula within a region has its location plan, an expanded view of the insula showing individual buildings and a table of all the properties within the insula with door numbers, dimensions and a brief description. You may access each dwelling by name from the list below, or select a region and explore from there.
