An incredibly well-preserved snack bar has been revealed and offers insight into the eating habits of the ancient Romans.
Equivalent to a modern day food stall, it would have served hot food and ready wine to the ancient Romans before being buried under ash and lava in a volcanic eruption in AD 79. These street stalls, also known as thermopolum, were popular in Rome. Bumi alone had 80 of them. But that was precisely the excitement among researchers because it is incredibly well preserved. The wall art adorns the table with a scene of wrestlers in combat and a picture of Nerd riding a seahorse, along with what appear to be standing items such as a duck duck and a rooster.
