The study of the scenes known as sacro-idyllic in Roman wall-painting allows us to identify the number of women and children present in them. But the kind of activities they are pursuing and why they are present in these external scenes must still be questioned. Some of them may be participating in religious initiatory ceremonies or in a cult dedicated to the dead.

Keywords:   genre scenes, landscape painting, mother and child couple, Pompeii, roman daily life, topia, villa
