Bill Gates buys Pompeii?

Rather intriguing news article in Il Mattino regarding the area beyond the Porta di Stabia. Anyone know anything more about this?

Do we need to add a new Gate(s) to pompeiiinpictures?

Details of the two tombs can be found in Rivista XII-XIII 2001-2 on pages 219-220 with an excavation time photo in figure 1.

They are directly "south" of the two schola tombs and the gate. You can also see them on the latest Google Earth.

The unusual aspect to us at least is that there are substantial stepped walls in opera incerta to the side of them, which can be seen in the video.
