Reconstruction of the newly discovered Thermopolium at Pompeii

posted on YouTube by Pablo Aparicio.

Salon Issue 466 from the Society of Antiquaries says:

‘Choices for dinner from this thermopolium would have included duck, goat, pig, fish, and land snails, all of which were found in the deep terracotta jars embedded in the stone counter. It appears that wine was also on offer; fava beans, which were used to modify the taste of wine, were been found in a different container.’

Please leave me a comment - its great to hear what you think.
