Roman house

Roman house

A Classical Roman dwelling, the external entrance of which opened into a quadrangular court (atrium, 1). In the ceiling of the atrium, an opening (compluvium) to the sky provided daylight and acted as an inlet for rainwater, which was collected in a pool (impluvium) sunk in the floor directly below the opening.
