Pompeii HGE34. 1813. De Clarac recorded a fragment of an inscription with the words SERVILIA AMICO ANIM. See Clarac F. de, 1813. Fouille faite à Pompei en présence de S. M. la Reine des Deux Siciles, le 18 Mars 1813.   (p. 44).  In February 2011 Dr Peter Kruschwitz and Virginia Campbell from the University of Reading, UK, identified the piece as being part of the HGE34 tomb tablet. This added the name of Servilia, the wife of Lucius and the tablet now translates as ‘Lucius Caltilius Pamphilus, freedman of Lucius, member of the Collinian tribe, for his wife Servilia, in a loving spirit.' The tablet is now in Naples Archaeological Museum.
