Italy (zeropoint9) Archaeologists in the European country of Italy have recently discovered an ancient hall where an emperor and soldiers used to ‘party’ about two thousand years ago. This large hall has been discovered by the researchers of the Oriental University of Naples. It was located in the seaside home of Vedio Pollione, a Roman knight and statesman who lived in the first century BC.
According to the university’s Facebook post, ‘This cliff-top villa in Posillipo was famous for its parties, which were attended by Emperor Augustus (the first Roman emperor). ‘
According to the New York Post, archaeologists said the hall was decorated with a black and white mosaic carpet. Excavator Marco Giglio said, ‘Based on the style of construction, the hall could be late Republican or Augustan.’
Investigating the residence’s upper bath and its roof revealed the hall was used for weapons during World War II, the team said. The property had a 2,000-seat Greek-style theater on rocky ground overlooking the sea, as well as a building used for musical performances.
