Re: Pliny the Younger.
Pliny in the book does not result any dates/
He says in his second letter to Tacitus that he was eighteen at the time of the eruption.
Me have plenty of other biographical information about Pliny to know that this was in 79 AD; he was a very prominent figure of his time, even rising to the height of serving as Consul in the year 100.
