The Antrum of Initiation, or Great Antrum, is a complex of artificial tunnels excavated into the volcanic rock at Baia (the ancient Roman resort town of Baiae) on the northern side of the Bay of Naples in Italy, famous as the site of the Roman city of Pompeii. The Antrum was discovered and its excavation was lead by RF Paget in the 1960s. The route paralleled Virgil's description of Aeneas' trip to the Underworld.
