An epitaph on a monument near Torre Annunziata in Italy memorializes the victims of the Mt. Vesuvius eruption in 1631.
Giovanni Battista Mascola being an eyewitness of it wrote a book of the 1631 eruption from a first hand account and included etchings.
Multiple maps from cartographers such as Abraham Ortelius in 1570 and Antonio Lafreri in 1575 depict Pompeii and Herculaneum as still existing.
The official version has Mt. Vesuvius erupting and burying Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 AD.
The historian Pliny the Elder died during the eruption.
He was a friend of the Emperor Vespasian.
And the Roman Senator Tacitus.
The history of Rome has been moved back more than 1500 years.
