Mount Vesuvius is a volcano adjacent to Pompeii and Herculaneum that erupts at the end of the first book, setting the events of the second book in motion.

History Edit

In Stage 7, Caecilius, Felix, and Quintus travel to Mount Vesuvius for a boar hunt, in which Quintus saves Felix's life.[1]

The mountain is not further discussed in the stories until Stage 12 when Caecilius is eating with Iulius, and the ground began to shake. Caecilius is unconcerned with this, as he recalls a similar incident many years ago, which he survived by what he believed to be intervention from his lares after an offering was given to them.[2]
