Found and Lost, Incovenient artifact #4

Inconvenient artifact #4, Singed fragment of a toga recovered from beneath ruins of Roman city of Pompeii.  The city was buried by an eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. This bit of cloth was quietly stuffed in a drawer in 1965, pretty much forgotten about since then.
