This fresco is located in the “House of Deer” in Herculaneum,dating 45/79 B.C.

There are some items in the shelf.In the bottom you can see in the left a figs faded,in the centre a dates and right a glass carafe with honey.Above you can see in a metal baking sheet some figs,dates and peanut.Out of the metal baking sheet there’s a peanut.
