The shop is called Latin and is a hot drink counter in Latin. It has not been found on the Regio V website of the Archaeological Park. The shop has not yet been opened to the public and will open on Saturday.
Traces of nearly 2000 years of food were found in some deep earthenware pots containing hot food, and the owner put them on the counter with round holes.
The front of the counter is decorated with brightly colored murals. Some of the murals depict animals as part of the ingredients in the food sold, such as an upside-down chicken and two ducks.
The head of the Pompeii Archaeological Park, Massimo Ossana, said: “This is an extraordinary discovery. This is the first time we have unearthed the entire White House.”
Archaeologists also discovered a bronze wine glass called patera, ceramic pots for stews and soups, wine bottles and amphire bottles.
The ancient city of Pompeii is located 23 kilometers (14 miles) southeast of Naples and is inhabited by approximately 13,000 people. It was buried in ashes, pumice and dust because of its explosive power equivalent to many atomic bombs.
“Our preliminary analysis shows that the numbers on the front of the counter at least partially represent the food and beverages sold there,” said on-site anthropologist Valeria Amoretti (Valeria Amoretti).
Amoretti said that traces of pork, fish, snails and beef were found in the container, which she called the discovery “proven evidence of a variety of animal products used to make dishes.”
In this 66-hectare (165-acre) ancient town, about two-thirds were discovered. The ruins were not discovered until the 16th century, and organized excavations began in 1750.
Pompeii is a rare document of the life of the Greco-Romans, one of the most popular attractions in Italy and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
