A beautifully decorated room has been discovered at Emperor Nero’s famed Domus Aurea (Golden House) in Rome and brought back to light after 2,000 years. The room is decorated with panthers, centaurs and a delightful sphinx. Experts chanced upon the fresh marvel in the fabled palace while they were doing restoration work on the vault of a neighbouring part of the structure and they dubbed the new area “the Sphinx Room”.
