In Pompeii, phallic symbols on local roadways pointed the way to the nearest brothel; possibly to direct foreign sailors who didn’t speak Latin.

  1. I’m curious if it was done by a single individual or by whoever was on duty that day on the road.

    Tom: Get Richard, there’s a new brothel on hidden street.

    Barry: What do you mean, hide the street? Damn, that’ll be at least 16-20 dicks away. Rich is going to be furious.

  2. I’ve visited Pompeii and have read extensively about it. In addition to the street advertisements, at least one of the brothels had paintings depicting various sex acts painted on the walls. Again, it’s easy to imagine sailors who didn’t speak the language pointing at what they intended to do.

  3. There were/are also a number of carved dicks that were placed on the inside of doorways in people’s homes as a sign of threshold security. Puritan sentiments contributed to the destruction of many of the artifacts when the site was first discovered.

  4. The old wivestale about the penis pointing to a brothel is true. If this was real, archeologists in Pompei said there would have been Brothels all over the city, and the directions would have been confusing at times.
