The Eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 1306

The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 1306 is unlikely to have happened, but if it did there was lava flowing into the sea.

The sources for this eruption are:

1 – Pighius Stephanus Vinandus, Hercules Prodicius seu Principiis juventutis vita et peregrinatio, Antuerpiae, Cristoforo Plautinus, 1587, pg 466. [1]

2 – Andrea Schottus, Itinerarium Italiae, Amstelodami, Jansson, 1655, pg 526 (into the Italian edition, dated 1669, the name of the Author became Francesco Scoto). [1]

3 – Leondro Alberti (1568) [1]

4 – Masculo (1633) [1]

Schottus copied from Pighius. Alfano argues that Alberti meant to write 1036 but accidentally wrote 1306, and this is where the idea of this eruption originates.
