Sextus Pompeius was the son of Pompey the Great from his third marriage. After his father had been defeated by Caesar in 48 BC Sextus continued to fight against Caesar and was finally captured and murdered in 35 BC. His base was located on Sicily. The Sicilian myth of the brothers Anapias and Amphinomus, who saved their parents from Mount Etna's eruption, is an allusion for the pietas of children for their parents. Mount Etna's eruption is symbolized by Neptune who was also responsible for earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
