Now Castellamare di Stabia; an ancient town in Campania, between Pompeii and Surrentum,
which was destroyed by Sulla in the Social War, but which continued to exist down to the great
eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79, when it was overwhelmed along with Pompeii and Herculaneum.
It was at Stabiae that the elder Pliny perished. See Pompeii
