Factual error: Before the eruption, we see Mount Vesuvius with a crater. Mount Vesuvius did not have a crater prior to the eruption in AD 79. This can be seen in a fresco depicting Mount Vesuvius found in Pompeii.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Corvus kidnaps Cassia and is racing through the city on his chariot, the street he is travelling down is completely devoid of rubble, bodies, and anything else that was already shown to be strewn across all of the streets.

Factual error: In a brief scene showing a map of Europe as it was in 79 AD, complete with Latin. Rome is displayed with the Flavian Amphitheater (Roman Colosseum), however, Pompeii was destroyed in 79 AD and the Colosseum did not open until 80 AD and was not finished to look as the Colosseum we know it and as shown on the map in the movie, until many years after that under the rule of Domitian, the brother of Titus.
