Pompeii - House of the Small Fountain. The small fountain is located in the mosaic-covered nymphaeum.  A nymphaeum in ancient Greece and Rome was a monument consecrated to the nymphs, especially those of springs. The house itself, on the Via di Mercurio, dates from the first century B.C. and is a typical atrium-style house.
