I wait for times like these. When I can call someone out for such grievous error. It's like when you play contact sports and you hit someone with such force and perfect positioning that it looks like they got knocked the f*ck out.
He means Pompeius Magnus, Pompey the Great, the guy who came to the aid of Crassus and crucified 6000 some odd slaves along the road between Rome and Capua. Crassus actually did the majority of the fighting in the third servile war, but Pompey took credit for mopping up all the survivors. They were both elected to Consul.
Pompeii is the city with the volcano.
I'm willing to bet that he at first merely thought you had spelled Pompeii incorrectly, then figured you probably wouldn't, so he gewgled Pompey.
