Reg VII, Ins 1

General Description



House of Siricus Reg VII, Ins 1
lies along the eastern boundary of Regio VII on the Via Stabiana between the Via dell'Abbondanza to the south and the Via degli Augustali to the north. The southern part of the insula is occupied by the Stabian Baths and a number of surrounding shops.

Although the insula contains mostly commercial properties there are two houses of note: The House of Venus and Mars and the House of Siricus, the latter of which is examined here in more detail.
