San Gennaro Vesuviano. Stratigraphic trench for the creation of the road to link SS 268 with A30. The dislocation of stratigraphic sequence is clearly visible near the meter stick and is associated with the earthquake and aftershocks of A.D. 62–63. The same dislocation was then revisited by human intervention aimed at providing water to Pompeii through the restoration of the Augustan aqueduct: 1. Pedomarker B. 2. Pumice fallout of Avellino. 3. Pyroclasts associated with the protohistoric cycle. 4. Pre-Roman paleosol. 5. Remains associated with excavation of the research trench route of the Augustan aqueduct. 6. A.D. 79 paleosol. 7. Fallout of A.D. 79 and associated system of fossilized furrows.

From Oplontis: Villa A (“of Poppaea”) at Torre Annunziata, Italy. Volume 1. The Ancient Setting and Modern Rediscovery by John R. Clarke and Nayla K. Muntasser
