Description: Located in region I xii 1, this building has an entrance from the main street (the Decumanus) that leads into a courtyard, where there is a tablinum-type sanctuary. In the southwest corner there is a kitchen and the east wing contains four dining rooms with three benches (triclinia), after which the building is named as House of the Triclinia (Casa dei Triclini).
