Ancient Brothel Restored in Pompeii
"It was the jewel of Pompeii's libertines: a brothel decorated with frescoes of erotic figures believed to be the most popular in the ancient Roman city.

The Lupanare — which derives its name from the Latin word 'lupa,' or 'prostitute' — was presented to the public again Thursday following a yearlong, $253,000 restoration to clean up its frescoes and fix the structure."
