Abstract

The excellent natural conditions of the Sarnus coastal plain have encouraged intensive occupation and farming in antiquity. Between the early 1st century B.C. and the 1st /early 2nd century AD , various cadastral operation took place here, some of which as consequence of the devasting eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. In the early 1st century BC, the Sarnus plain belonged to three cities: Nuceria, Pompeii and Stabiae; after the Social war the administrative geography changed, with the disappearance of Stabiae, the transformation of Nuceria into a municipium and the deduction of a Sullan colony at Pompeii: in consequence, the plain of the Sarno was made a first land division. In the following decades, two others land divisions reorganized the agricultural area, first in the Augustan age and then during the Nero’s reign. In the aftermath of the Vesuvian 79 AD eruption, disappeared Pompeii, two imperial officers proceeded to the reconstruction of the existing land boundaries; then, in the early decades of the next century, a new cadastral operation took place.
