27 Peristyle and Garden at House of Menander in Pompeii, Italy

This tranquil scene is the inside garden at the House of Menander. The Romans called the colonnade with Doric columns a peristyle. Look closely and you’ll see the remains of bright red paintings that once decorated the eastern portico. Some experts speculate the owner of Casa del Menandro was a wealthy merchant named Q. Poppaeus Sabinus.
