VI.15.1 Pompeii. Wording from a bronze seal, with the name of P. Crusi Fausti, in raised lettering.
According to NdS, on 13th March 1895, a bronze seal was found in the upper levels of soil on the north side of the peristyle.
In a recess in the signet ring of the seal, an ivy leaf was engraved.
See Notizie degli Scavi, 1895, (p. 109).
According to Della Corte, he thought that P. Crusio Fausto may have been one of the lodgers of the upper floor of the Vettii house.
The family name was not otherwise known to him, other than from this seal found in the upper levels of earth on the north side of the peristyle.
It read -  P. Crusi Fausti  .
