and reading through that more, i see that pompeii was more of a party city than the history channel will dare to tell us. when i get a time machine that`s the first place i`m going...before it`s destroyed, of course.

I.7.8 (bar; left of the door); 8162: We two dear men, friends forever, were here. If you want to know our names, they are Gaius and Aulus.

Was this the Roman version of a phone number in the bathroom?
