Pompeii: Dig Uncovers "Rich man and His Slave"

Recommended Posts

 

Two bodies discovered in Pompeii, Italy

 

Quote

Officials said the wealthy man was aged between 30 and 40. Traces of a warm woollen cloak were found beneath his neck.

The other man was aged between 18 and 23. Officials at the archaeological site said crushed vertebrae indicated that he was a slave who did manual labour.

One was probably a man of high status, and the other his slave, officials at the Pompeii archaeological park said.

Summary: I'm not sure that we can know the relationship of the pair or even be certain of their social statuses. It is, nevertheless, another interesting find at Pompeii.

Compacted vertebrae I think you mean. If his backbone was crushed, it wasn't his job that killed him.
