Summary[edit]

Description
English: A map showing the cities and towns (with their Latin names which were affected by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD ; the general shape of the ash and cinder fall —see w:en:pyroclast— is shown by the dark area to the southeast of Mt Vesuvius.

This map shows modern day coast lines and uses the Mercator projection (although that is not important on a map of this scale). North is, as usual, at the top of the map.

Español: El mapa muestra las ciudades y los poblados (con sus nombres en latín) que fueron afectados por la erupción del Vesubio del año 79 d.C. ; las cenizas y los residuos de la erupción volcánica —consultar Piroclasto (tefra)— cayeron al sureste del Monte Vesubio, donde está indicado por la zona oscurecida.
