This post is also available in: Polish (polski)

p=30319″>thermopolium and so far one there were found around dozens of such places in the city. The Roman fast-food bars were mainly visited by the poorer layers of the society, who did not have a kitchen or the opportunity to cook themselves in insulae.

In such a place you could eat coarse bread with salty fish, baked cheese, lentils or drink a well-seasoned wine.

The discovery took place in the so-called Regio V in Pompeii – which is not open to tourists, and where intensive excavations are been taken since the 1960s.
