Cool: Archeologists Find Links To Trojan War In Pompeii

I find this kind of thing super awesome

Archaeologists make ‘stunning’ find of banquet hall in Pompeii

A group of archaeologists excavating the doomed city of Pompeii found quite the surprise earlier this week: a banquet hall complete with paintings inspired by the Trojan War.

The discovery was announced earlier this week, The Associated Press noted.

The banquet hall and its mosaic floor were uncovered during a project to help prevent further demise of the ruins of Pompeii. (snip)

The images painted on the walls include Helen of Troy, Apollo and Cassandra.

The paintings were likely meant to both entertain and to “provide conversation starters,” the same source said.

It looks like this

The Trojan War took place sometime in the 12th or 13th century BCE, and no one has been able to determine if it was real. Does this add to knowledge that it could be real, happening 1200-1300 years after?

    He looks like: Seriously?

    We have been planning on getting married for how long?

    Now your father says; no fucking way?

    We have been planned to be married since we were children.

    What the fuck happened?

    Who shows the anguish? There is the guilt.

    pompeii was a city of decadence and perversion, any wonder as to why a Volcano went off nearby?

      God sure works in mysterious ways, doesn’t He? Hitler, Stalin and Mao murder millions of innocents and God looks the other way, but “Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!” and God goes all medieval and kills children, women, men, dogs AND cats!

      Let two women dance together, or let Mexicans shop at Wal-Mart, or negroes buy groceries at Tops Friendly Market or Pittsburgh Jews worship, and God sends in an Angel of Retribution wearing body armor and toting an Army gun to save America!!

      Pat Robertson (America’s Best Christian) claims hurricanes are sent by God to punish sinners. Why does God have such bad aim? And why do all his Angels of Retribution turn out to be assholes?

      Maybe God is not omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent.

        Why not spout your blasphemy to your Christian wife?
        Oh, that’s right, she’s probably preaching right now at that Christian Nationalist church you despise so much.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Blasphemy? Ms Dowd knows my positions. Their church is not a fundamentalist sect.

          So God/Allah can command natural disasters to kill innocents in the vicinity of activities that fundamentalist Muslims and Christians find objectionable but He can’t stop mass killers of millions?

          It seems a logical question to have asked Mr Joe.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            So your wife’s church doesn’t fundamentally believe in Christ and redemption?
            Or in the glory of God?
