Four-wheeled ceremonial chariot unearthed in an area of Pompeii targetted by looters.
[sciencythoughts.blogspot.com]
The Archaeological Park of Pompeii and the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Torre Annunziata have released a press statement announcing the discovery of an extraordinary find, which has emerged intact from the excavation of the suburban Villa of Civita Giuliana, beyond the walls to the north of the ancient city of Pompeii, as part of the joint operations launched in 2017 and in accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2019, which sought to combat illegal activities which had been conducted in the area. A large ceremonial chariot with four wheels, along with its iron components, beautiful bronze and tin decorations, mineralised wood remains and imprints of organic materials (from the ropes to the remains of floral decoration), has been discovered almost intact in the portico facing the stable where, in 2018, the remains of 3 Equids, including a Horse still in its harness, had already been found.

stunning. Looters are a human defect. What is more valuable? 1 looter out of 7.5 billion humans or 1 chariot out of zero? I'm with the chariot. Shoot to kill. Sorry But.....!
