Victim numbered 14 on display in VII.7.29 Pompeii. December 2006. Plaster cast of body.
According to Dwyer, this plaster cast was of victim number 14.
See Dwyer, E., 2010. Pompeii’s Living Statues. Univ. of Michigan Press: (p.103)  
Garcia y Garcia described, as victim number 13, a mature man, already old, but perhaps still vigorous, fallen on his back, wrapped in a wide cape, with hands on his chest and with slightly drawn up legs. 
He had a fine aquiline nose and a smile was on his lips. On the right leg was a circular ring that denoted a slave. 
This plaster cast was obtained outside the Stabian Gate on the 11th October 1889, at approximately 10 metres if you are exiting and turn to the right. 
A plaster cast was also made of a woman who was found next to this man.
