|Atrium - the oldest part of the house and
the area where Tarquinius meets his clients when he's in port
|Bibliotheca - the library which serves
as a repository for the scrolls Traquinius brings home and/or has copied
for the family collection. Unlike many ancient Romans, Laura Calluria
and Tarquinius actually read the scrolls they amass, as apposed to just collecting
them for prestige and snob appeal.
|Triclinum - the formal dining room
|Peristylum - adjoining the atrium, this
small open garden area is surrounded by most of the house itself.
|Hortus - the back garden - a placed
of quiet repose, and horticultural curiosity as well as a source of fresh
culinary herbs and vegetables for the kitchen.
|Shoppe - along the front of the building
next to the front door - this is where Tarquinius has some of the more upscale
items available for sale retail. Wholesale transactions are usually
processes at the warehouse.
|Cubiculum - a guest bedroom where a
weary traveler can lay his/her head for the night
