Ranking dates the bones much later, suggesting they are from captive wild animals shown in nearby Roman amphitheatres.

Topic: [The trip of a party of Germans to the erupting crater of Vesuvius, described in detail by Herr Waiblinger. Emotive writing personifying the volcano which is called "Fra Diavolo" and giving the subjective impressions of the writer, is mixed with writing which attempts to assess the dimensions of the crater, the height of the cinder cones, the pace and intensity of the activity, the course and heat of the lava stream. The writer resolves the tensions between the two aspects of his own account by projecting the spirit of "scientific" enquiry onto his companions. "They", he claims, were determined "to examine the crater in a thorough truly German manner". He did not feel the need to enter the crater; he "seated [himself] comfortably" and "contemplated the rich colours in this mighty volcano" ]
