#AceHistoryReport – Aug.19: A skull bearing tufts of white hair and part of an ear, as well as bones and fabric fragments, were found in the tomb in the necropolis of Porta Sarno, an area not yet open to the public that is located in the east of Pompeii’s urban centre…..

#AceHistoryDesk says that a skeleton was discovered in Pompeii shows evidence of Greek language there the discovery is unusual since most adults were cremated at the time: An inscription of the tomb suggested that its owner, a freed slave named Marcus Venerius Secundio, helped organise performances in Greek Pompeii.

Experts said it was the first confirmation that Greek, the language of culture in the Mediterranean, was used alongside Latin.

“That performances in Greek were organised is evidence of the lively and open cultural climate which characterised ancient Pompeii,” the director of the Archaeological Park of Pompeii, Gabriel Zuchtriegel, said in a statement announcing the discovery.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Mr Zuchtriegel said Marcus Venerius clearly had been able to make a living for himself after he was freed as a slave, given the “monumental” size of his burial tomb.

“He didn’t become super rich, but certainly he reached a considerable level of wealth,” Mr Zuchtriegel said.

The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD destroyed Pompeii.

Excavations over the years have yielded remarkable discoveries of tombs, chariots and brilliantly frescoed homes.
