Pompeii as it was and is by Matania Featured Print

Pompeii as it was and is by Matania

The last election in Pompeii, 2000 years ago, before the eruption of Vesuvius, as envisaged by the Sphere special artist and expert in historical reconstruction, Fortunino Matania. This image was based on discoveries made during recent excavations in 1924, which revealed something about how electoral candidates made themselves known to electors. in the vicinity of the house inhabited by the candidate inscriptions were painted on the walls recommending him for election. Very often a man was warranted for by other citizens who had already gained a sufficient reputation to enable them to wield influence. In the picture here, there is a novelty in Roman election appeals; in the inscription found near the Termopolio (tavern) at No. 2 of the Via dell' Abbondanza, inscription reads as follows: 'C.Lollium Fuscum II VIR V.A.S.P.P Asellinas Rogant Nec Sin Zmyrina.' In English, this appeal would read: 'Asellina, supported by Zmyrina, recommends the candidature of C. Lollium Fuscum for duumvir, having in charge the streets, the temples and public religious festivals.' Who these two women were is unknown, but it is interesting that they should wield such influence. Date: 1924
