This area, once hosting homes, had been transformed in a vineyard in the years preceding the eruption, with a triclinium for outdoor banquets covered by a pergola.13 victims, adults and children, were found at various points inside the enclosure, seized by death while trying to find a way out of Nocera Gate, running above the layer of pumice stones that had already reached a height of 3.5 m. The flight was interrupted by the arrival of the pyroclastic flow, which was fatal due to asphyxiation and high temperatures.

The casts of the 13 victims can now be seen near the back wall of the garden, in a glass case.

Date of excavation: 1961-1962; 1973-1974.
