The small rooms opening into the atrium of a Pompeian house are known as cubicula.
The cubicula were located in the atrium, peristyle, and upper stories.
This Catacomb is remarkable for the number of its luminari, arcosolia, cubicula, and mosaics.
The increasing demand for graves led to the formation of the cubicula A1 to A6, as well as others in the interior of the area.
The cubicula were also defaced, their symmetry injured, and their construction endangered by similar imprudent excavations.
These cubicula received the air and the light through the door, which the Pompeians probably left open in summer.
The Catacombs consist essentially of two parts—corridors and chambers, or cubicula.
Other rooms round the court were the triclinium, or dining room, and cubicula or bedchambers.
In the upper levels, however, some cubicula are well lighted by large openings.
After traversing some passages, we enter the cubicula of a family.
