In Pompeii, much of the political, religious and economic aspects of life were shown. Many reconstructed and excavated houses display political situations such as Basilicas houses, laws and legislative documents. In houses, economy is evidently suggested through front shops and silverware, demonstrating wealth and trade from different locations, Egypt being an example. These private houses are able to present these Egyptian influences to Pompeian life through the representations of wall paintings of the Nile.
