The cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum were buried under metres of stone and lava[62] killing thousands.

Romans, do Titus Andronicus book right; Patricians, draw your swords, and sheathe them not Till Saturninus be Rome's emperor. Spencer argues that "the play does not assume a political situation known to Roman history; it is, rather a summary of Roman politics. Distraught, Tamora and her two surviving sons vow to obtain revenge on Titus and his family. Sorrow conceal'd, like an oven stopped, Doth burn the heart to cinders where it is. Ah, now thou turn'st away thy face for shame; And notwithstanding all this loss of blood, As from a conduit with three issuing spouts, Yet do thy cheeks look red as Titan's face, Blushing to be encountered with a cloud.
