Room of the dancing Satyr

This room my have been a bedroom or cubiculum. The Romans usually had very small bedrooms.

On the walls, the painters have represented a procession of dancing Satyrs and Bacchae. These characters are linked to the cult of Dionysus. The decoration of this room is close to that of the next room (Mysteries of Dionysos).
