VII.7.29 Pompeii. May 2015. Detail of plaster cast of dog found in November 1874.
Photo courtesy of Buzz Ferebee.  According to Ruggiero the animal had been tied behind the front door of the House of Vesonius Primus. As the cinders raining down through the hole in the centre of the roof (compluvium) accumulated in the passageway, he climbed on top of them, twisting himself with his back to the ground and his legs raised upwards, wrenching his neck and his head to get free from the rope fastened to a ring of bronze which can still be seen attached to his collar. However, to no avail, as he was overcome and choked by the ashes. (1879)
