VI.11.10 Pompeii. December 2007. Room 16, peristyle. According to Della Corte, he hypothesised that a certain Eutychi could have been the faithful servant/procurator of the owner, who he named as Fuficius Januarius. He surmised that Eutychi had stayed too long before fleeing from the eruption. See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.44).  According to G. Luongo et al, a skeleton found above the peristyle was a woman. See Luongo, G. et al. (2003): Journal of Volcanology and Geothermal Research126, (p.195).   According to Pagano and Prisciandaro, found in March 1835 in the middle of the peristyle but high above the original soil level was a skeleton.  Nearby were two gold circles, perhaps armbands or bracelets, (MN 24992 and 24993); three gold rings and an iron key, together with a bronze seal with an inscription –
Euti
chi     [CIL X 8058,33]
These objects are now in Naples Archaeological Museum, inventory numbers – MN 4755, 25830, 25831, 25832. See Pagano, M. and Prisciandaro, R., 2006. Studio sulle provenienze degli oggetti rinvenuti negli scavi borbonici del regno di Napoli. Naples : Nicola Longobardi.

According to Della Corte, he hypothesised that a certain Eutychi could have been the faithful servant/procurator of the owner, who he named as Fuficius Januarius. He surmised that Eutychi had stayed too long before fleeing from the eruption.

A skeleton was found in the lapilli, high up above the peristyle of VI.11.9/10, with a group of precious objects together with a key and seal registered to him and with the letters – Eutychi

VI.11.10 Pompeii. December 2006. Looking across peristyle garden from the north-west corner. According to Jashemski, the large peristyle garden was enclosed by a portico on all sides. The portico was supported by thirty stuccoed columns, on which were written numerous graffiti. This peristyle was one of the largest in the city, so far found.
The portico was four metres wide. The skeleton of a woman was found in the garden at a height of about 2.50m above the original soil level. 
She had been fleeing with her jewels when she had been overcome by the falling of the lapilli.  See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.143)
