The Dancing Faun was discovered in 1830 in the ruins of the a Roman home discovered at Pompeii (later called the House of the Faun) which was also home to the famous Alexander Mosaic. The Faun is thought to be either a 2nd-century Greek original, or a very high-quality Roman copy. The sculpture became almost immediately famous and many copies of this beautiful and popular composition have been made since then.
