Wall-paintings at Carnuntum (Lower Austria). Review about the current results . Apart from two articles from H. Brandenstein the ancient paintings of Carnuntum were unknown. Along with the excavation-projects which started in 2001 some wall-paintings were uncovered in the houses I and II (Figs 1–3) . But during the researches in the villa urbana a fountain was examined which was nearly completely filled with roman paintings. Most of them are part from two different ceiling-paintings which were destroyed by an earthquake in the middle of the 4 <sup>th</sup> century. One could be identified as a coffered ceiling-decoration (Fig. 4) with red and blue coffers. The other consists of several frames with two winged persons and some animals (Figs 4–5) .
