I Survived the Destruction of Pompeii, AD 79

Frescoes in the Villa dei Misteri at Pompeii are among the most notable that survived the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Though their purpose has been hotly debated, informational literature provided at Pompeii stated that they were likely used to instruct young women about to be married.

The Quadriportico at the Great Theater in Pompeii likely served as a foyer for the theater. Though the art and statuary that once filled it is gone, the 74 surrounding columns have survived.

The Egyptians actually made very little use of swords until the Iron age, but even then preferred to use them only as a back-up weapon to their bows, spears and axes. The most notable exception was the Bronze Canaanite Sickle Sword, or Khopesh, which traces its origins to Sumeria around the third millennium BC. The Khopesh eventually became the very symbol of Egyptian authority, with two such swords even found in the tomb of the legendary Pharaoh/Mummy Tutankhamun (c 1350 BC).
