THE LAST DAYS OF POMPEII
by Edward George Bulwer-Lytton 

BOOK THE FIRST 

Chapter I 

THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF POMPEII. 

'HO, Diomed, well met! Do you sup with Glaucus to-night?' said a young man
of small stature, who wore his tunic in those loose and effeminate folds
which proved him to be a gentleman and a coxcomb. 

'Alas, no! dear Clodius; he has not invited me,' replied Diomed, a man of
portly frame and of middle age.  'By Pollux, a scurvy trick! for they say
his suppers are the best in Pompeii'.
