The ancient city of Oplonti shown in the "tabula Pentigeriana" houses the magnificent Villa of Poppea attributed to Poppea Sabina, the Emperor Nero's wife, an example of a residential building of Imperial Rome known for the discovery of rich gold. Poppea's villa has spectacular wall decorations, frescoes, mosaics and a rich suppellettile sculpture made up of Roman copies of Greek originals, all in an extraordinary architectural setting.
The eruption of 79 D.C. deleted all traces of Oplonti and his name has been forgotten to be turned into one of Torre Annunziata.
