Chapter Summary

Vincent Tran tam Tinh compiled important inventory of aegyptiaca at Pompeii in 1964. A focal point is the Temple of Isis, the only well preserved edifice of Egyptian nature in the area of Vesuvius. The reconstruction of the excavations records and finds in the Museo Nazionale at Naples in the early 1990s enabled visitors and scholars to get an idea of the original presentation of this building that now is entirely stripped of its decorative embellishments. The main argument in this chapter is that paintings are subdivided into different decorative programmes which go with the different parts of the monument. The Iseum of Pompeii consists of a podium temple surrounded by a portico, with a large open room on the west side. The Iseum of Pompeii consists of a podium temple surrounded by a portico, with a large open room on the west side column counted from the east.
