All this liveliness, from cultural sophistication to naughty predilections, was to come to end with Mount Vesuvius’ horrifying eruption. Pompeii’s citizens never expected such devastation from the friendly green giant who sat behind their town – they thought it was the home of Bacchus, the wine god. Instead, they died in fear and terror, curled up next to a loved one or alone. We can now see the final moments of Pompeii’s dead, preserved in plaster-casts.
