Pompeii was founded around the eighth century BC by Oscans who settled, divided into 5 villages at the southern foot of Vesuvius's slopes not very distant from the river Sarno then navigable. Then, as happened to the Campania region, it was conquered by the Romans in the III century AC. Under the rule of Rome Pompeii it became first municipium and then colony "Veneria Cornelia Pompeianorum" because governed by dictator Publio Cornelio Silla. Under Nero Campania suffered extensive damage due to an earthquake occurred in 62 or 63 A.D. The Roman senate immediately ordered the reconstruction, but all was in vain, because on August 24, 79 d. C., when they were still running the works of reconstruction of the town, a disastrous eruption of Vesuvius wiped out entirely Pompeii and with it Herculaneum, Stabiae and Oplontis. There was no escape for almost anyone and the thriving Pompeii was only a lava mantle often up to three meters cement kilns that the inhabitants and destroyed every kind of life.
