  • The tribune Marco Nonio Balbo lived in the city of Herculaneum, of which he was a great benefactor, in its heyday, before the ruinous eruption of Vesuvius that covered it with a layer of ashes, lapilli and pyroclastic sediments, decreeing its disappearance, as well as the death of much of its population. The terrace named after the tribune, whose statue dominates it, and on which its funeral urn is located, is located at the beginning of the path of visiting the remains, immediately at the top of the staircase that rises from what was once the beach of the town. Close to the ancient walls of the city, the terrace rests on some furnaces, the ancient shelters of the boats, inside which were found a large number of massed skeletons, inhabitants of the city who sought refuge during the eruption and there they found a horrible death.
