Triclinium - Villa of Poppaea, Oplontis. The first pyroclastic surge, the same one that killed the residents of Herculanem, also engulfed Oplontis. The villa is believed to have belonged to Poppaea Sabina, the second wife of the Emperor Nero. The oldest part of the house centres round the atrium and dates from the 1st century BC.
