Lewd graffiti from Pompei

NSFW:

Satyr & nymph
(Bar/Brothel of Innulus and Papilio): Weep, you girls. My penis has given you up. Now it penetrates men’s behinds. Goodbye, wondrous femininity!

(peristyle of the Tavern of Verecundus): Restitutus says: “Restituta, take off your tunic, please, and show us your hairy privates”.

(House of the Citharist; below a drawing of a man with a large nose): Amplicatus, I know that Icarus is buggering you. Salvius wrote this.

(near the rear entrance vestibule of the House of Menander): At Nuceria, look for Novellia Primigenia near the Roman gate in the prostitute’s district.

(Bar of Astylus and Pardalus): Lovers are like bees in that they live a honeyed life

(Bar of Athictus; right of the door): I screwed the barmaid

(Pottery Shop or Bar of Nicanor; right of the door): Lesbianus, you defecate and you write, ‘Hello, everyone!’

(House of Pascius Hermes; left of the door): To the one defecating here. Beware of the curse. If you look down on this curse, may you have an angry Jupiter for an enemy.

(on the wall in the street): Theophilus, don’t perform oral sex on girls against the city wall like a dog

That's a mosaic, not graffiti.

Or is there some technical definition of "graffiti" I am missing?

The arc of the moral universe bends towards chaos.
People who believe God or History are on their side provide the chaos.

I see now.

So there was a city where elaborate pornographic art on the walls was commonplace, and yet they still had slobs who vandalized it with "obscene" graffiti.

In essence, drawing dicks on public art even when the public art is dicks. :lmao:
