I doubled my work when I decided to move half my story to Rome. Think things are the same there as in Israel of the day? Huh uh. That would have been way to easy on me.
Most of my references came from this super-easy-to-navigate site.
The parts that are most used in Stray Drop:
Atrium — the part of the house you enter, which is largely an open space. In the middle was the impluvium, which is a pool that rain water collects in. (There’s obviously an opening in the roof to allow for this.)
Peristylium — the central courtyard off a house, where there would be gardens.
Tablinum — this connects the atrium to the peristylium and is the main gathering room in the house.
Cubiculum — bedroom. The largest bedrooms are off the peristylium
Procoeton — a servant’s room connected to a cubiculum
