All the latest information about discoveries from the world of ancient Romans. I encourage you to let me know about any Roman news and to indicate any corrections or inaccuracies. I try to search for material everywhere, but it is natural that not everything will be noticed by me.

Roman electoral slogans discovered in Pompeii

In June this year, researchers found in Pompeii Roman electoral slogans that were written on stone slabs.

One slogan says: “Please, choose Elvio Sabino, a builder of a worthy state, a good man”. The inscription was painted in black and red colors; earlier the stone was painted white to hide previous slogans.

On another inscription we can read the name of the builder from the family of Albucii.
