Villa San Marco, Stabiae, July 2010. Excavations at the south corner of the west end of the [portico 1 of the?] large peristyle 66.
Photo courtesy of Michael Binns.
According to Bonifacio, this excavation was made to verify and document the dimensions of the large peristyle. 
During the excavations some terracotta Grondaia datable to the Augustan age were found. 
Near to the corner spiral decorated column, which can be seen centre right above, a human skeleton was found with the right leg severed by a fallen wall. He was identified as a male, about 60 years of age. 
Also found were fragments of bronze, fragmented iron keys and a fragment of a pottery vase (terra sigillata).  
In the south-west corner of the peristyle three rooms were found, probably cubicula.

Marble altar

 

Castellammare di Stabia, Villa San Marco, July 2010. White marble altar. Photo courtesy of Michael Binns. The altar, from the first imperial age, is decorated with garlands and ribbons supported on the skulls of stags. This came to light in 1585 following an excavation in the garden next door to the church of S. Maria di Pozzano. According to Pagano, given its sizeable dimensions, it was perhaps part of a sumptuous little temple destroyed in the 79AD eruption. This temple would have been near a large senatorial seaside villa, situated in the valley of Faiano which lies below it. A lead fistula was discovered that may attribute this villa to Publius Sabidius Pollio. He or his father of the same name was aedile at Nola circa 30 B.C. It is therefore reasonable to suppose that the temple was part of, or near to, the villa. Pagano considers the altar may be connected with the cult of Diana, as hunting in the woods behind Mount Faito must have played an important part in the life of a rich aristocrat. See Pagano M., 2003 in Rivista di Studi Pompeiani XIV. Roma: L’Erma di Bretschneider. p. 349-351, figs. 6-8.

Castellammare di Stabia, Villa San Marco, Late 19th century Giorgio Sommer photograph of white marble altar. During the 18th and 19th centuries the altar was used to support a Corinthian column at the top of which was a cross. This was located in a panoramic position on the old Sorrento road. It suffered considerable exposure to sea air, oxidisation and vandalism before being replaced by a resin copy and the original removed and restored.
This can be seen on the cover of “Pompei tra Sorrento e Sarno” in a position overlooking Castellammare di Stabia. There is also a photo c.2001, on the inner front leaf, showing it still in situ and covered in graffiti, taken by M. Russo. See Comitato per gli Scavi di Stabia. “Pompei tra Sorrento e Sarno”, Rome: Bardi Editore, 2001. See Pagano M., 2003 in Rivista di Studi Pompeiani XIV.
