VII.16.a Pompeii. September 2005. Wall on north side of Baths, showing possible tie points along wall. According to Descoeudres, for many years this area had been described as the quay wall of the harbour. The idea of a sea-wall is likely to go back to the 1950’s, when it was discovered during clearing work under Maiuri’s direction. If this were indeed the walls of the Pompeii harbour then it would have been ten metres above sea-level. A trial trench excavated in June 1998 proved this idea to be false. The reason for the eighteen tie points, very similar to ancient mooring ring stones, must remain unknown. See Rivista di Studi Pompeiani, 1998, IX, article by Descoeudres, J.P: The so-called quay wall north-west of Pompeii’s Porta Marina. (p.210-217)
