“Bones of chests brick crusted in the marble, inside brass, outside iron, handles, locks, rosetts, nails, etc of bronze.
In first chest 45 gold and 5 silver coins, ancients had excavated in room behind and made a hole through the wall and got most of the money !!! “
See Gell, W. Sketchbook of Pompeii, c.1830.

This was a masonry base faced with marble, see PAH II, p.214.
Found in the chest were 45 gold coins, and 5 silver, see PAH III, p.89.
The chest had been partly rummaged through by the ancient scavengers.
