Pompeii (Italy)

Lead box of tower 6?

On top of each water tower there should have been a lead box. Here the photo from 1917 of the only
excavated lead box of certain size, reported near / on top of tower nr 6. Unfortunately this place was
hit by an allied bomb in the autumn of 1943. The modest size of the box and the layout of the present
water tower 6 raises many questions. (see separate information box)
