This work is a translation of a book by a 19th Century French antiquarian César Fanin. The ancient Roman and Greek cultures had a very different attitude about sexuality than successive European cultures. Some of the best artistic expressions of this can be found in the recovered city of Pompeii. Excavators discovered erotic frescos, mosaics, statuary and phallic votive objects. The moveable erotic artifacts were taken to Naples and kept in seclusion in the Royal Museum.
