Discovery in Pompeii a thermopolis: a restaurant with leftovers

Rome – The archeological area of Pompeii, the city destroyed in the 79 dc. due to the eruption of Vesubio no day of surprise and today the hall of a thermopolis is communicated, the place where it is served and bathed in the inhabitants, intact and decorated and with only leftover food.

The Ministry of Italian Culture and the Archaeological Area announce that it will consider “another extraordinary discovery in Pompeii, in the new excavations carried out within the maintenance and restoration project of Region V”.

Treated by thermoplastic, where solids serve together in the most beautiful classes of the city, perfectly preserved with the display with the image of a ninfa navy on horseback and other animals with brilliant colors that are three-dimensional, explanatory.

But what has surprised most archaeologists is the discovery of the words with the remains of this comedy that is sold in the calf and that is the origin of the “comedy para llevar”.

Therefore, the costume of firefighters consumes food in free-flowing baths and the archaeologists and experts who work in the Archaeological Park of Pompeii are studying the material to be found that this discovery can amplify the concoction.

“In addition to being a testament to the more extensive life in Pompeii, the possibilities of analysis of this thermopoly are exceptional, since first it has been excavated to an entourage of vanguard methodologies and technologies that are unexplored dates,” he said. Massimo Osanna, Director-General of the Archaeological Park of Pompeii.

Now with an interdisciplinary work, various analyzes are being carried out in the laboratory to know the contents of the “dolia”, the recipients of the bar in which the committee in ancient Rome is located.

The decorations of the thermoplastic meter – the first ones to emerge from the excavation – show in front the image of a nereida (ninfa) on horseback in a marine entourage and, in the shortest short, the probable illustration of the same thing as a letrero commercial.

In addition, in the thermopoly we will find different materials for dispensing and transport: new anaphors, a recipient in bronze, frogs and a ceramic oil.

The sole of the room is formed by the so-called “cocciopesto”, an impermeable remnant formed by fragments of terracotta in which fragments of polished marble were inserted in some points.

The thermopolies, where they serve and serve well, as the number of Greek origin indicates, are preserved in large dolia (tarros) encrusted in the mamposteria, eran muy habituales in the Roman world, where it is customary to consume the prandium (the comida ) al aire libre.

Solo in Pompeii haoi one ochenta, but none with the showman completely painted, which confirms the exceptional nature of the hall.

The first analysis of the foods

The first analysis confirms that the paintings of the representative represent, at least in part, the foods and prayers that are actually sold inside the thermopoly: real years are represented between the frames of the display and, hecho, a piece of patterns was found inside one of the recipients, together with wood, goats, fish and caracals of the earth, certifying the large variety of products of animal origin used for the elaboration of the plateaus.

On the other hand, the first archaeobotanical analysis permits to identify fragments of the caducial ruble, most likely relevant to the structural elements of the enclosure.

In the background of a dolio, identified as a recipient of wine at the base of the bottle for beber, which is located in the interior, identifies the presence of habits, intentionally molidas, which as Apicius insures to use the work y the color of the wine, blank.

Another interesting date is the discovery of human houses, which are partly altered by the passage of tunnels made in modern times by clandestine excavators in search of beautiful objects.

Some are from a person of at least 50 years of age who are likely to be positioned on a bed of which at the moment of the reading of the pyroclastic curriculum that arrears the city.

Other rabbits, except for investigators, belong to a second individual and were found inside a large dolly, quizzes allotted by the first excavators.
