An archaeologist working on the Aegean island of Astypalaia found made an unusual discovery while exploring the limestone rocks that line the cape. Along with his students, Dr. Andreas Vlachopoulos made a hard find when he discovered two large penises etched next to the name Dion. In another etching, that may be from the 6th century B.C.E. it reads: “Nikasitimos was here mounting Timiona.”

“We know that in ancient Greece sexual desire between men was not a taboo,” Vlachopoulos tells the Guardian. “But this graffiti… is not just among the earliest ever discovered. By using the verb in the past continuous [tense], it clearly says that these two men were making love over a long period of time, emphasizing the sexual act in a way that is highly unusual in erotic artwork.”
