What and where was Pompeii?

 

The city of Pompeii was an ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of the commune of Pompeii. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area, was mostly destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

 

龐貝是一座羅馬時代的古城,位於現代義大利卡伯尼亞區那不勒斯市的旁邊,屬於古代龐貝城的領地。在西元79年時,因為維蘇威火山爆發,龐貝與海格利斯城還有附近的村庄被摧毀,全數被埋在46公尺的火山灰和火山岩石中。
