A wall painting of the baker Terentius Neo and his wife, from the House of Terentius Neo, Pompeii, A.D. 50-79, will also be part of the display at the British Museum. Pompeii and Herculaneum were wiped out by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. The show will feature objects found in their ruins including jewelry, carbonized food and a baby’s crib that still rocks on its curved runners.
