Unearthing ancient Roman politics: Pompeii’s surprising electoral inscriptions

In a captivating Pompeii excavation, ancient Roman election inscriptions have emerged inside a house, giving us a glimpse into political maneuvering of the time. These endorsements for Aulus Rustius Verus, a candidate for the role of Aedile, responsible for public works, were discovered within the house because campaign events and dinners were common there.

Nearby, a bakery hints at political patronage, where promises were exchanged for votes, reminding us of the age-old link between politics and bread. These finds offer a captivating look into ancient Rome’s daily life.
