I took this photo a few days ago as I was traveling. Yes, it is a lead pipe. It was used to supply a town in Italy. This was a branch water supply pipe for Pompei. The houses also had clay pipes for indoor toilets throughout the town which led to a large septic field.

The town was destroyed in 79ad and excavation began in the 1870's. Quite advanced civilization regarding sanitation and water supply.
