Twenty silver articles in a wicker basket: an exceptional find in the Pompeii area provides the stimulus for an original, important exhibition at the Museo Archeologico of Naples.
The silver pieces found at Pompeii are fundamental for the variety and quality of the information they provide on the art, crafts, economy, everyday life and wealth of the city. The exhibition features a complete nucleus of tableware found in a wicker basket in the Triclinium of Moregine (Pompeii). The book also provides analysis of all the contexts known from bibliographic sources, and of the other three treasures from the Vesuvius area: the silver of the House of the Menander and the house of Inachus and Io, in Pompeii, and that of Villa della Pisanella at Boscoreale. The Archaeology Service of Pompeii and the Dept. of Archaeological Resources of the provinces of Naples and Caserta continue with the study of all the contexts in the Pompeii area where silver materials have been found, with the aim of systematically organizing the knowledge attained.
