Pompeii Villa

Near the ruins is a luxurious villa called the House of Vettii. Many of the walls were covered in huge paintings of a wide variety of subjects such as: a naval battle, wars, Hercules killing serpents, etc. There were also several erotic scenes. One which I will not show is of a man weighing his gigantic phallus against a bag full of money on the other scale pan.

This scene depicts 2 women holding drinking horns while the man in the toga is imbibing. The crested serpent on the bottom is a common monster symbol.
