Pagano wrote “Following on from this house (III.3), we have a shop with dwelling rooms on the inside, and climbing two steps one finds a room in whose flooring was embedded a large terracotta vase, in which was found the bones of a human skeleton, with 100 bronze coins, 60 of silver, and a bracelet of gold”.

See, PAGANO, N, Descrizione degli scavi di Ercolano, 1870. (p.21).
