Pompeii dig finds trace of ancient racehorse

Rome : Excavation in Pompeii has unearthed a stable with what appears to be the final resting place of an ancient racehorse. Pompeii officials on Thursday displayed a cast of the horse, which appeared to have been lying on its left flank when it died.

Naples daily Il Mattino quoted archaeologist Greta Stefani as saying the shape of the horse was represented by a vacuum, created by the decay of organic material.

Pompeii director Massimo Osanna said the animal was a thoroughbred likely used for races, not farm work. The stable belonged to a villa on Pompeii’s northern outskirts.
