Francisco Sirano, the director of this Herculaneum-based site, says that some of the turtle items have also been found near skeleton number 26, which shows that he did a lot of important work during that time.
Mount Vesuvius Eruption: Italian archaeologists found the remains of a rescuer who has been identified to a large extent. Archaeologists believe that the skeleton, which belonged to it, died about 2000 years ago during the eruption of the ancient volcano Mount Vesuvius. He was a soldier who saved the lives of the people at that time. Who was a senior officer who worked during the rescue mission (Vesuvius Eruption 79 AD). This mission was started by historian and naval commander Pliny the Elder. Since the 1980s, around 300 skeletons have been found here.
The volcanic eruption caused havoc to Herculaneum and the city of Pompeii near it. In 79 CE, the lava, ash and gas of the volcano were swept away from the buildings of these cities to the bodies of the people. This skeleton was found in sand about 40 years ago at a site north of Pompeii (Vesuvius Eruption AD 79 Facts). Which was named skeleton number 26. Now many important information has been received regarding this, such as its age was between 40 and 45 and he was a healthy person. Which had fallen to the earth due to the intensity of the explosion.
‘Took part in rescue mission’
A boat has been found near the skeleton and it is now believed that 300 other skeletons were found by those who were to be rescued (Vesuvius Eruption Pompeii). Francisco Sirano, the director of this Herculaneum-based site, says that some of the turtle items have also been found near skeleton number 26, which shows that he did a lot of important work during that time. Sirano said, ‘He may be the officer of the fleet who took part in the rescue operation. So that people living in villages and towns can be helped.
Coins and bracelets have also been found
Hard silver and two gold coins have also been found near the skeleton, which is considered to be a salary given at that time. Designs have also been found on gold and silver belts and swords, which shows that it is not the skeleton of a common soldier. While some equipment has been found in his bag (Vesuvius Eruption Bodies). Those who used to specialize in carpentry used to be engineers. Speaking of Pliny the Elder, he was a Roman naval commander. Who were stationed at the port of Misenam, which is slightly further from the coast of Herculaneum. He also died during this blast.
