Vulcanalia, Mt. Vesuvius and my birthday
It’s my birthday today – Thursday, August 23 – the day the Romans celebrated “Vulcanalia” and the day before Mt. Vesuvius erupted August 24 AD 79.
– August 23 – Vulcanalia
– August 24 – Mt. Vesuvius erupted
Hope you are enjoying the final days of summer – and getting caught up on the next chapters in Thucydides (for reading group 2) and the Old Testament (for reading group 1).
Reading with you is a great gift!
