II.6 Pompeii. December 2006. Tunnel leading from arena floor to outside the Amphitheatre. According to Mau, this narrow and low passageway was the gruesome corridor where the bodies of the dead were taken. They were removed from the arena and dragged by means of hooks, its entrance was the Porta Libitinensis, “Death Gate”. On the right can be seen a doorway to another dark room, possibly a storeroom in the corridor. At the far end is a doorway in the exterior west wall of the Ampitheatre. See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey, F. W., Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p. 215).
