IPTC INFO
CaptionThe Lupanar VII 12 18-20 is located approximately two blocks east of the forum at the intersection of Vico del Lupanare and Vico del Balcone Pensile Early Pompeian excavators guided by strict modesty of the time period quickly classified any building containing erotic paintings as brothels. Using this metric Pompeii had 35 lupanares. Given a population of ten thousand in Pompeii during the first century CE this leaves one brothel per 286 people or 71 adult males. Using a stricter standard for identifying Brothels brings the number to a more realistic figure including nine single room establishments and the Lupanar at VII rothels during this time period were typically small with only a few rooms. The Lupanar was the largest of the brothels found in Pompeii with 10 rooms. Like other brothels rooms in the Lupanar were plainly furnished. A mattress on a brick platform served as a bed.
