The Stone Phalluses of Pompeii

Anyone visiting Pompeii would be surprised by how much the city looks like a modern one. Streets, vendors, and even zebra crossings are found all over the city. Except, unlike most modern cities, the walls and streets of Pompeii are peppered with stone penises.

Look closely, and you’ll see that there are phalluses everywhere within the city: hiding on the roads, adorning the walls, and even hanging above doorways and bread ovens.
