Pompeii Graffitti

Jun 15th, 2009 | By Editor | Category: Anthropology, History

These examples of graffitty in Pompeii give us an insight into what the Romans were like. Not unlike us, seems to me:

  • Figulus loves Idaia
  • Vibius Restitutus slept here alone and missed his darling Urbana
  • Samius to Cornelius: go hang yourself!
  • We have wet the bed, host. I confess we have done wrong. If you want to know why, there was no chamber pot
  • I screwed a lot of girls here.
  • Auge loves Allotenus
  • If anyone wants a screw, he should look for Attice; she costs 4 sestertii.
