Caupona di Alexander

A splendid fountain dating back to the time of Hadrian, can also be found on the Decumanus. The portico above the pool continued to the so-called Caupona (tavern) by Alexander Helix, whose name originates from an inscription on the floor. From the erotic mosaics dating to the third century, it is assumed that it was a pleasure house.
