Petrified remains of a harnessed horse that died and was frozen in time when Vesuvius erupted nearly 2,000 years ago are discovered in an ancient stable near Pompeii




The animal was tall, well-groomed and had a saddle fitted with richly decorated bronze trimmings

It died in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD which destroyed Pompeii and the town of Herculaneum

The eruption produced hundreds of tonnes of lava and toxic gas which killed and petrified the animal  

It was found in the grounds of a villa in a Pompeii suburb which say may have belonged to a military general


 

2천년 전 그대로의 모습으로 폼페이에서 발견된 말


  AD 79년 베수비우스 화산이 폭발하면서 마구를 착용하고 죽은 말이 있는 그대로 굳은 상태로 고고학자들에 의해 발견되었다. 


이 동물은 키가 크고, 치장이 잘 되어 있으며, 화려한 장식을 한 청동 장식이 달린 안장을 가지고 있었다고 전문가들은 밝혔다. 




이 재앙적인 폭발로 인해 수백 톤의 용암과 유독가스가 생성되었고, 이로 인해 이 말은 물론 마구간에 있는 다른 말들도 함께 죽었다.
