Re: So where's that problem, elcano?
Who is the witness of destruction Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 year? (Xiphilin the author of 11 centuries!)
Pliny the Younger whose uncle, Pliny the Elder was killed while helping to evacuate folk using the Roman fleet.

Pliny the Younger.
I already spoke, Pliny the Younger not know anything about the city of Pompeii. In its book “Letters” there is no such city. I already spoke, Pliny the Younger not know anything about the city of Pompeii. In its book “Letters” there is no such city.
No, you asserted. Sorry but Pliny the Younger was very much aware of the 79CE eruption of Vesuvius. That is the point. Vesuvius erupted in 79CE.
If you want to continue believing nonsense, then that is fine. But don't expect folk to waste any more time on you.

Re: Pliny the Younger.
Pliny the Younger lived between 63 and 113 CE, was alive at the time of the eruption and also wrote about it AT that time.
I was alive in 1963, and I can assure you that Pliny the Younger was not.
I think you may be confusing the publication dates of some book with the actual time events happened.

Re: Pliny the Younger.
I am not sure I understand your question. Pliny the Younger wrote about the 79CE eruption and the death of his uncle in his Letters.
It is also worth noting as a secondary correlation, his uncle Pliny the Elder, was killed during a rescue operation trying to save folk made homeless by that eruption. And we find that after 79CE there are no more new works from Pliny the Elder. Also a new Prefect of the Roman Fleet is appointed by Vespasian.
The point is that there is corroborating evidence of the 79CE eruption of Vesuvius. There are eye witness accounts. There are ruins that contain coins where none date later than 79CE, where all of the architecture, pottery, construction, clothing, paintings and ornaments are all of the style found before 100 CE. There are the distinct layers of ash. There are the radiometric measurements.
Each data point independently corroborates a major eruption of Vesuvius in 79CE.
The issue is simply not in doubt or question.
