Archaeologists have recently discovered historical Pompeii remains of two men: one was a supposed wealthy man and the other believed to be his slave. it is dated back to nearly 2,000 years ago. They "were perhaps seeking refuge when they were swept away," said the director Massimo Osanna to BBC.

They were found in a large villa on the outskirts of the city. Archaeologists believe that the magnate was around 30 to 40 years old, while the other was around 18 to 23.

The city of Pompeii has been considered a historic tragedy that happened in AD 79, when a volcano eruption covered the whole city in lava, leaving it in ashes.
