The atrium of the House of the Wooden Screen in Herculaneum with central rainwater basin (impluvium) and marble table (cartibulum). In the background, the tablinum is separated by an elegant wooden partition. The simple mosaic floor indicates that the house was probably built sometime during the late Republican era (1st century BCE).
