SPQR Blues: Blues 4 part CX
Today is the 1930th anniversary of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Some scholars have disputed the date, placing the eruption in September instead. In support of September: jars of new autumn wine, people wearing heavier clothing, and a coin that sort of looks like it was minted that month. In support of August: an eyewitness account with a fairly clear date, and jars of summer fish-pickle sauce.
