Storyline

Flavia's father has been ruined by the eruption of Vesuvius and, as the bankers come to repossess the villa, she and her friends go to Laurentum to stay with Pliny's young nephew, also called Pliny. He tells them that there is supposed to be a fabulous treasure buried just off the coast and Lupus becomes obsessed with diving to find it, especially as he sees the dolphins as good omen. However he almost dies after an octopus attack and is revived by Jonathan. Venalicius, the pirate leader, is also after the treasure and Lupus reveals that the man is his uncle, who betrayed the family. However Venalicius is killed by the octopus, bequeathing everything he has to Lupus and, whilst the treasure is never found. Flavia saves the family's fortunes by selling a valuable ornament.
