The city of Pompeii, located 23 km southeast of Naples in southern Italy, continues to leave us with incredible discoveries. In one of the excavations that were being carried out, the bodies of two men, a nobleman between 30 and 40 years old and his young slave, were found and reconstructed in such detail that it is even possible to distinguish that the first was wearing a wool cape and the second a short tunic.

Both bodies, surprised by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D., have been found in a side space of the cryptoporticus, in the noble part of the suburban villa of Civita Giuliana, a majestic estate from the time of the Emperor Augustus.
