|House with Antae|
The house you see above was a typical Greek-style house built around a courtyard surrounded by rooms and porticos. The deep basin in the middle would have been lined with tiles and collected rainwater for household use. Excess was drained off and stored in a cistern. One room was decorated with two antae...pilasters with Corinthian capitals.

Can you imagine it looking like this?
Is your curiosity piqued? Are you imagining what life in Glanum was like? I'll share more of its story in my next post.
