Archaeologists working in the vicinity of Hadrian’s wall found an image of a phallus engraved in the wall of a quarry.
These types of images were popular in ancient Rome and commonly found on city streets. The phallus in the ancient world was a sign of good luck. The engraving is dated to 207 CE and it was probably made by soldiers stationed there – they were most probably renovating the wall.
IMPERIUM ROMANUM is in process of translation over 3300 Polish articles about history of ancient Rome. If you have the opportunity to financially support the further translations – even with smaller amount – I will be very grateful.
