house of cards came crashing down,
he was wondering, why?”

THE DECURIO VISITS THE VETTII BROTHERS ON AUGUST 23rd

 

“and there wasn’t…”

 

000-the-decurio-visits-the-vettii-brothersDigitally enhanced image created from an original photo taken in the House of Vettii in Pompeii, Italy in June 1996.


Archaeological Footnote: The eruption of Vesuvius was documented by contemporary historians and is generally accepted as having started on 24 August 79, relying on one version of the text of Pliny’s letter. However the archeological excavations of Pompeii suggest that the city was buried about three months later. This is supported by another version of the letter, which gives the date of the eruption as November 23. People buried in the ash appear to have been wearing heavier clothing than the light summer clothes typical of August. The fresh fruit and vegetables in the shops are typical of October – and conversely the summer fruit typical of August was already being sold in dried, or conserved form. Wine fermenting jars had been sealed, which would have happened around the end of October. Coins found in the purse of a woman buried in the ash include one with a fifteenth imperatorial acclamation among the emperor’s titles. These cannot have been minted before the second week of September. So far there is no definitive theory as to why there should be such an apparent discrepancy. (Source: Wikipedia)
