Pompeii day3-15. Garden of the fugitives. Plaster casts of eruption victims. Evidentally a number of Hollows made by victim corpses were found in this garden when it was excavated. These family groups were probably trying to flee the city (by the nearby Nocera gate) when they were overcome by the third pyroclastic surge that killed anyone left alive still in Pompeii. They were trying to take shelter in this garden.
