*POMPEII/HERCULANEUM, ITALY ~ This picture, painted some 15 yrs before the eruption, is unique among all the surviving frescoes from the cities for its realism + is surely intended to be a true portrait ot the young couple.
Portrait of the baker, Terentius Neo and his wife from the atrium of a house in Pompeii, 1st Century AD. From this painting we can clearly see the differences in skin colour with Terentius Neo being of a more deeper bronzed complexion while his wife was depicted with very pale tones. This is because in Ancient Rome fairer skin on women was seen as more beautiful.
British Museum: AD 79. In just 24 hours, two cities in the Bay of Naples in southern Italy were buried by a catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Preserved under ash, the cities lay buried for just over 1,600 years, their rediscovery providing an unparalleled glimpse into the daily life of the Roman Empire.
