Pub ordering in ancient Rome

Recommended Posts

I don't mean to make a habit of posting these, but lately I've come across a couple of good ones.  Here's the latest.

Tavern life in ancient Rome could well have been a lively experience. Witness the images in Pompeii of situations the landlord does not want happening, rather like 'this is banned' posters. Despite the demand for orderly behaviour, there seems to be a certain sense of humour in portraying things this way. Expedient, obviously, because posters as such are less likely to be read than a scene is viewed, and because paint is more available than paper.

I couldn't imagine otherwise. Let's see: alcohol, gambling, possible prostitutes, etc. No, i can't see it being a recipe for problems. LOL

A very memorable bar scene from the HBO series Rome:
