FP6 Pompeii. East tomb 6 at Fondo Pacifico.

Excavated 1886-7. This part of the site is now buried.

 

Pompeii FP6. Detail from late 19th century photo. According to Mau, the entrance to the tomb was in front, and closed by a block of travertine. It led, not to a sepulchral chamber, but to a stairway by which one ascended to the second storey. Here statues were placed, but the exact form of the upper part cannot be determined. The finding of five tufa capitals suggests that the second storey may have been a columnar structure, like that of the tomb of the Istacidii. When the excavations are carried further east enough other fragments will perhaps be found to make a complete restoration possible. One of the statues is of a man holding a roll of papyrus in his hand, with a round manuscript case, scrinium, at his feet. See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p. 435).
