Stabiae is an ancient city located some 4.2 km southwest of Pompeii. It is at close proximity with Mount Vesuvius and was buried by tephra ash in 79 AD just like Pompeii. It houses some of the famous architectural and artistic remains of Roman villas. Three fragments of frescoes that were stolen from two of these famous villas have been returned to the Pompeii’s archaeological park recently. These relics date back to 1st century AD.
