Roman graffitti in Ostia, Rome focused on REAL ISSUES.

There are two graffiti in this image:

GRAFFITO (#1):
Hic ad Callin[i]cum
futui orem anum (palma)
amicom [—] re nolite r
in aedi ( or: [c]inaede) [—]

“Here I had oral and anal intercourse with my friend in the inn of Callinicus (or: with my sea-going friend Callinicus?). Do not …”.

Callinicus was probably the owner of the building.

GRAFFITO (#2):
Livius me cunus
lincet Tertulle cunnu ov[—]
Efesius Terpsilla amat.

“Livius licks my c**t (or: Livius, that faggot, licks me?). Tertullus … c**t (or: faggot?) … Efesius loves Terpsilla”.

Social issues were at the top of their minds:

Agathopus et Prima et Epaphroditus tres convenientes.

“Agathopus and Prima and Epaphroditus had a threesome”.

Just in case you had any doubt Romans had REAL ISSUES etched on the very walls of the great city of Ostia:
