"Have"--greeting at the entrance

The House of the Faun is one of the largest houses in Pompeii covering 6 acres. It received it name from the beautiful statue of the Faun in the impluvium. See below. A number of important and beautiful mosaics were discovered here which now reside in the National Museum of Naples. The most famous depicts the Battle of Alexander the Great and Darius.
