7 Pliny and his mother were living at his uncle s villa in the town of Misenume when Vesuvius erupted. He was 18 at the time. A few years after the eruption in 79 A.D., he wrote a friend, Cornelius Tacitus, describing what happened to him and his mother during the second day of the disaster. Ashes were already falling, not as yet very thickly. I looked round: a dense black cloud was coming up behind us, spreading over the earth like a flood. Let us leave the road while we can still see, I said, or we shall be knocked down and trampled underfoot in the dark by the crowd behind. We had scarcely sat down to rest when darkness fell, not the dark of a moonless or cloudy night, but as if the lamp had been put out in a closed room. You could hear the shrieks of women, the wailing of infants, and the shouting of men; some were calling their parents, others their children or their wives, trying to recognize them by their voices. People bewailed their own fate or that of their relatives, and there were some who prayed for death in their terror of dying. Many besought the aid of the gods, but still more imagined there were no gods left, and that the universe was plunged into eternal darkness for evermore. Pliny the younger s letters were discovered in the 16 th century. His uncle died during the eruption, but Pliny survived and grew up to be lawyer, author, and magistrate in Ancient Rome.
