Ancient Roman marble relief panel depicting a winged penis, 1st century AD.
This is definitely old and definitely a winged wang with a wang and another wang, but… not sure it’s Roman. That looks a lot like some Greek letters up top.
Impressed by the level of detail on the foreskin.
DICKBUTTS OF ANTIQUITY
It’s definitely a Roman Relief and is actually called a Polyphallus (essentially a dick with a dick.) They were rife in Ancient Roman times because they were a good luck charm. Anything that made a person laugh was said to ward off “evil” or bad luck and one of those was a phallus, and what better thing to make a person laugh than a dick with a dick and a dick shaped tail. There were a huge number of phallic shaped object found in Pompeii. From marble reliefs to graffiti, from furniture to baby mobiles.
(Don’t believe me? You try to explain this:
You’re right in that the lettering at the top looks Greek. A quick search on Google returned a site which claims the wording reads “Friendly Neighbour.” Now, having forgotten all my knowledge of the Ancient Greek language since leaving uni, I can’t attest to it’s credibility but it would certainly make sense that the wording is Greek. The Roman’s were obsessed with looking wealthy and knowledgeable, even if they weren’t. A knowledge of Greek Culture was one way of showing you were intelligent, had money, and were cultured and being cultured was the epitome of well to do society. Roman citizens commissioned art work, literature, furniture, architecture - everything and anything so that it looked Greek or that it was based on Greek mythology, religion, theatre or literature. (If you’ve read the Aeneid you’ll know it was commissioned to read pretty much exactly like Homer’s works of art The Iliad, and The Odyssey.) Having something - anything - in your home which was in anyway Greek showed you knew what you were talking about and were someone other people should rub shoulders with. It’s what modern day Archaeologists and Classicists call Cultural Capitalism.
This particular piece of art would most likely have been in the doorway of someone’s house and was a perfect way of killing two birds with one stone. It made the person entering the house laugh and to ward off bad luck, and it made the owner of the house seem cultured.
