As an afterthought, it is truly amazing that these ancient artifacts survived at all.
Pompeii was rediscovered in the late 18th Century CE, but it wasn't 'till the 19th Century
CE that excavations began in earnest. The 19th Century was called the Victorian Era,
and Christian ideology prevailed to the extent that many ""questionable" historical
artifacts fell to their wrath. In fact, if you follow this thread back, you will learn that
some of the artifacts were not put on public display 'till around 2000!

Facts must be faced. Christian rule and Jew rule go hand in hand. To end one is to
end the other. The brain-dead Christians don't realize it, but the Jews do. BOTH
belong on the garbage heap of history!

The smell of the city is strong and foul as you make your way down
Trajan’s Market. The narrow streets are hot and overcrowded with
soldiers supervising, civilians running errands, and the aristocracy
taking a stroll in their expensive togas. All around you peddlers
and customers are squabbling and negotiating prices. Amidst all of
the commotion, you can still hear the roars from the Colosseum as
another gladiator meets their violent end. Welcome to Ancient Rome.
While most people have a basic understanding of Ancient Rome, take
a deeper look into the culture that’s credited with shaping the
Western World.

Importantly, this is Ancient Rome at the beginning of the end. Trajan's Market and the Colosseum were both massive undertakings, both done for the entertainment and comfort of the new cosmopolitan Romans. Their culture quickly became debased as more and more time and money was spent on placating the lower class public, and their genetics were polluted with the blood of slaves and foreigners.

"[A]nother gladiator meets their violent end." :?:

Another example of the improper but increasingly trendy use of feminized pronouns, In this case the gender of the single gladiator is supposedly unknown (except that it appears to be a male pictured on the ground, pleading for mercy with a boot in his crotch), so the pronoun describing him that follows should properly be the single pronoun "his" rather than the plural pronoun "their."

Surely there were no girl gladiators who met their end like that. I don't know, we now have girl MMA and naked mud wrestles. Those cosmopolitan Romans might have enjoyed watching that?

Apologies for going off the topic of Romans & Art with discussion of not-so-subtle feminization of pronouns in our language. Further discussion of this, one of Dr. William Pierce's pet peeves, fits better here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1748&p=12985#p12985

Excerpt:
The [University of Minnesota] policy would also allow men claiming to “identify” as transgender to use women's locker rooms and bathrooms, as well as participate in activities for men or women. And UMN's website already pushes the insanity, allowing students to register as “male, female, agender, gender nonconforming, genderqueer, nonbinary, two spirit, or nothing at all. Among the “pronoun options” are he, she, ze, the singular “they,” none and “prefer not to specify.”

ROME (AP) — Archaeologists have found in an ancient Pompeii bedroom a fresco
depicting a sensual scene of a goddess and swan. Pompeii archaeological park
director Massimo Osanna told Italian news agency ANSA on Monday that the
figure of goddess Leda being impregnated by a swan representing Roman god
Jupiter is a fairly common theme in Pompeii home decoration.

Wade comments...I HOPE this does not conflict with the White Bio concept
of "family values." An open mind should convince the (CI) prognosticators of
these ideas, such as Kirk Lyon's wife, that they should have NO PLACE here
on White Bio.

Is the swan actually copulating with the woman in the picture or simply sitting on her lap? From what I can see, it is sitting there.

Sometimes I wonder about these so-called "authorities" and their claims. We live in an age where the most degenerate things (bestiality in this case) is offered to gain attention.

Leave it to some CI types to have left their residue on White Bio to come up with the worst.
Remember Billy Roper? Quite likely there are others as well, still trying to redeem "lost souls."

Sexual Mores of Ancient Greece?

he obvious answer here is pederasty, the widespread Greek practice of
sexual relationships between adult men and adolescent boys.

This custom, attested throughout Archaic and Classical Greece, seems to
have become widespread by the eighth century BCE. It probably had its
origins in the almost exclusively male nature of public life, and served
a social function as a means of formalizing ties between different age
groups in the citizen body. Some authors (especially Plato and Xenophon)
idealized relationships between men and boys as a form of tutelage with
no necessary physical component. So far as we can tell, however, these
relationships usually were sexual.

Zeus and his cupbearer/adolescent lover Ganymede:

Relations between the adult male lover (erastes) and the adolescent loved
one (eromenos) were regulated by a strict social code. A man began to
court the boy of his choice (who was supposed to be from a good family)
when the boy was just entering puberty - ancient authors rhapsodize about
the first stubble on adolescent cheeks.

The process of courtship was (supposed to be) quite formal: a man was to
bring valuable gifts to the boy; and the boy was to show himself demurely
reluctant to accept those gifts or initiate a relationship. Once relations
began, the man would continue to give the boy presents - but never money,
since that would imply prostitution. The whole process was - in theory -
consensual: any man who forced himself on a youth could be prosecuted for
rape.

The man and his adolescent lover socialized publicly, especially in the
wine-soaked atmosphere of the symposium. Even during symposia, however,
it was deemed critical that they maintain the proper postures of erastes
(lover) and eromenos (loved one). The man, as the active lover, could show
affection to the boy; but the boy, as the passive object of affection,
was not to display physical attraction to the man. This pose reflects the
power asymmetries built into pederasty: the man, as the mature partner,
had to show himself dominant at all times, while the boy, as the junior
partner, was thought to submit to the man from a combination of respect
and non-romantic love (philia).

The Greeks were less concerned with the gender of sexual partners than
with sexual roles. To penetrate was to assume the active, socially
respectable role; to be penetrated was to be passive, unmanly, and degraded.
Thus the “proper” form of sexual contact between man and adolescent was
intercrural (between the legs) - that way, the man could assume the active,
penetrating role, while the boy was not actually being penetrated.

It was thought extremely improper for relationships between a man and his
lover to continue once the lover was fully mature (i.e., when he could
grow a full beard). At that point, even intercrural sex would degrade
both partners.
