Pompeii Casts. Victim number 12, found on 28th December 1882, in VIII.6.6 or 5.

Found at a height of approximately four metres from the original soil level.

 

Known as Victim no.12, as this was the 12th to be successfully cast, and it was exhibited in the Antiquarium for some years. 
He was found on 28th December 1882, at a height of approximately four metres from the original soil level.
According to Dwyer, he had been fleeing along the top of the cinders at the time of his death.
He was found above the south-west corner of a garden, now numbered as VIII.6.6.
Near him were found two iron keys.
See Dwyer, E., 2010. Pompeii’s Living Statues. Univ. of Michigan Press: (p.103)  
Garcia y Garcia gives the plaster cast number as 16.
See Garcia y Garcia, L., See Garcia y García, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.194).
According to NdS –
“Insula 7, Reg. VIII. Inside and to the right of the fourth entrance on the north side, counting from the north-west, and at a height of about four metres from the soil, there appeared a human skeleton, of which was cast a model in gesso. Although the genitals do not appear, because they did not turn out, it seems from the features to be a man who, having fallen on his back, lies with his legs drawn up, his right hand to his breast, and his left arm somewhat raised. Near him were found two small iron keys, poorly preserved.”
See Notizie degli Scavi, 10, (1881-1882); p.606, (28th December 1862).
