Erotic Art in Pompeii and Herculaneum (NSFW!)Uploader: Gazshura 5 years ago Subscribe 8
The phalluses, as an independent phenomenon or as a body part of Pan, Priapus or a similar deity was a common image. Found in a Samnite sanctuary in the old town of Cales Calvi Risorta. Sex was generally the cheapest in Pompeii, compared to other parts of the Empire. Dionysos, the Greek god of wine, theatre and transformation was highly sexualised, as were his followers - the male satyrs and female maenads, and their depiction on wine vessels is not surprising.
