Samnite House, Herculaneum

The Samnite House, which dates from the 2nd century BC, is one of the oldest buildings so far discovered in Herculaneum.
The floor of the tablinum (the central room at the end of the atrium of a Roman house, originally the master bedroom, later used for storing records) is decorated in black and white mosaic with a rosette of diamond shapes around a round copper tile.
