VIII.5.39 Pompeii. Plaster-cast of an impression of a boy found on 24th January 1882, around 12 feet (4 metres) above the ancient ground level. Photo by Giorgio Sommer. Also found nearby was a skeleton of a woman, but only her arm was successfully cast.  On her arm were two gold bracelets, and on her hand were two gold rings.  It is conjectured that she was his mother, and that he was infirm and being helped from an upper window when the surge hit Pompeii.  See Dwyer, E., 2010. Pompeii’s Living Statues. University of Michigan Press. (pp. 98 to 103). See Notizie degli Scavi, 1882, p.280: See BdI. 1884, pp126 sgg.
