Moregine, immediately to the south of the archaeological site of Pompeii, is the findspot of an important archaeological assemblage buried by seismic activity that preceded that final eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79.

One of the features of this site is often referred to as the "Inn of the Sulpicii". Road works in 1959 uncovered the site which is located some 600 meters south of the Porta Stabia close to what would have been the ancient mouth of the Sarno River. The site was heavily waterlogged and circumstances allowed for only a partial excavation that revealed a series of well-appointed triclinia and a garden peristyle.

Archaeological excavations conducted in 2000 explored the remains of a structure that contained at least two human victims of the eruption as well as a massive assemblage of silver vessels dubbed the "Moregine Treasure". Some elements from the silver hoard have been displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
