VIII.2.23 Pompeii. December 2005. South wall, west end. At the rear of the south wall was the baths area. Found in September 1887, in the furnace-area of the baths were many silver objects, weighing a total of about 3kg, together with two wax tablets. According to Cooley, these were found wrapped in a cloth, and relate to a business deal between two women dating to AD61. A freedwoman, Poppaea Note, had borrowed money from Dicidia Margaris. As security she had temporarily transferred ownership of two slaves to her creditor. The second tablet [CIL IV 3340] related to the temporary transfer of the slaves. See Cooley, A. and M.G.L., 2004. Pompeii : A Sourcebook. London : Routledge. (p.169, CIL IV 3340)
