Pompeiian red comes from a very beautiful, bright red burnt earth from Tuscany.
In landscape painting such glazing earth colors often achieve more depth.
In ancient Rome it was called Sinopia (due to the city Synope), where it according to Pliny has been found for the first time.
In Pompeii, hence the name, as well as in other cities of ancient Rome, there are several examples of murals, in which this inorganic pigment was used.
