Graffiti from Pompeii
Awesome! I wish the messages were up in the original for you Latinists; as is, you’ll have to handle translations that oscillate between colloquial and stilted, e.g., “Two friends were here. While they were, they had bad service in every way from a guy named Epaphroditus. They threw him out and spent 105 and half sestertii most agreeably on whores.” The human spirit endures; most of these would decorate Berkeley public restrooms just fine, if you changed the names and threw in the odd reference to capitalism.
