Welcome to The Ancient Graffiti Project, a digital resource for locating and studying graffiti of the early Roman empire from the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. More than 500 ancient graffiti are now available here, ca. 300 from Herculaneum and another 200 from Pompeii (from the Lupanar, Insula I.8, and other locations). Entries for the Herculaneum graffiti now include photographs from our fieldwork in 2016.
Special acknowledgements to Eric Poehler for the map of Pompeii and the creators of ImageMapster for the highlighting map feature.
