One man was probably a tall man, between 30 and 40 years old, still wearing a scarf under his neck.
The second, probably between the ages of 18 and 23, was clothed and had a broken spine, indicating that he had been a slave to the podium.
The body was found in Civita Giuliana, about 700 meters northwest, in the center of ancient Pompeii, in the basement of an excavated mansion.
Men’s teeth and bones were preserved, and the remnants of their soft tissues were filled with plaque that was left to harden and then excavated to reveal the shape of their bodies.
“The two victims were probably seeking refuge when they were swept away at around 9am,” said Massimo Osanna, director general of the site. “It was a fatal shock shock, as well as a display by their feet and hands.”
In a statement, Culture Minister Dario Franceschini said the discovery indicated that Pompeii’s status was “an incredible place for research and study.”
Pompeii, 23 kilometers (14 miles) southeast of Naples, was home to about 13,000 people at the time of the explosion, burying it under ashes, pebbles and dust, making it burnt in time.
Remains were not discovered until the 16th century, and excavations took place around 1750. However, more recently, attention has focused on the capture of the decay or demolition of ruins.
