Reg VI, Ins 6

General Description

House of Pansa Reg VI, Ins 6 lies along the southern boundary of Regio VI as delineated by the Via dele Terme and the Via della Fortuna. To the north it is bound by the Vico di Mercurio, to the east by the Via della Fullonica and to the west by the Vico di Modesto.

The insula contains a bakery and a few shops, but it is mostly occupied by one large property, the House of Pansa. The house has an imposing peristyle with sixteen Ionic columns supporting the inner margins of the roof. The house is examined here in detail.
