According to Dwyer, described as victim no. 15, this plaster cast was a woman of mature age.
She had been found lying face down on her stomach and half-clothed, her arms stretched before her.
See Dwyer, E., 2010. Pompeii’s Living Statues. Univ. of Michigan Press: (p.106-7)  
According to Garcia y Garcia, she was known as victim no.14.
This victim was recovered from near the Porta Stabia on 11th October 1889.
She had fallen face down but was always displayed as if she was found lying on her back.
See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p. 193-4, Figg. 451-3).

Near them were found the impressions of some trees, one of which it was possible to cast. Its height is 3.40m, and the diameter of the trunk is about 0.40m. 
See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1889 (p. 369 and p. 407)
It proved to be a laurel which bears round fruit in the autumn, adding weight to Ruggiero’s (and Fiorelli’s) conviction that the volcano had erupted on 23rd November and not 24th August.
