Amazing tomb found in Pompeii – View

“It was a surprise to everyone, even to serious archaeologists,” the director of the archaeological park, Gabriel Zustregel, told the DPA news agency.

There are several reasons for considering this discovery special: according to the findings of experts, the dead Marcus Vinerius Secondo is a former slave who, after his release, achieved wealth and, accordingly, social status. They also read on the epitaph that he had offerings in Greek and Latin for four days. “This is the first clear evidence of performance in Greek, which had previously been assumed on the basis of indirect evidence,” Zustregel explained.
