Pictures images photos of the Roman artefacts excavated from the Villa of Papyri in Herculaneum, so called because it contained 18,000 carbonised papyrus scrolls. The Villa of the Papyri was 250 meters wide stretching along the Gulf of Naples. Its extensive grounds were set away from other dwellings in Herculaneum and ran down to a private harbour. The Naples National Archaeological Museum houses artefacts excavated from the Villa of Papyri including rare Roman bronze statues. Several stylised bronzes of dancing women were excavated which would have originally stood on the parapet of the peristyle of the Villa of Papyri. Statues of Greek Philosophers and characters from mythology were also excavated. Download Royalty Free stock photos of the artefacts from the Villa of Papyri.
