[ 1512 ] Discredited Eruption

Neumann van Padang (1983) stated: "Portuguese sailors in 1512 mentioned streams of fire flowing from the summit along its slope to the sea shore of the small island Gunuape. According to Wichmann (1899) this island must have been G. Api, north of Wetar." However, in an analysis of documents related to the route taken by Portuguese ships commanded by Abreu in 1512, Sollewijn Gelpke (1995) determined that this was not the erupting volcano described; a drawing of the event showed Sangeang Api.
