IT'S A FREE FOR ALL: It's like #Seattle takes one step forward, three steps back. This time, it's because of a federal judge.

Earlier this week, US District Court Judge Marcha Pechman issued an injunction that the City of Seattle cannot enforce its anti-graffiti ban in response……
THEY'RE AT IT AGAIN: Notorious graffiti taggers EAGR/EAGER+SATN/SATAN were arrested in 2022, charged with felony level vandalism since their work was so prolific. Now they're out and doing it again. Judge's ruling sends message it's ok to trash the city.

#EpigraphyTuesday - Kicking off with a bit of Nero and Poppaea graffiti from Pompeii, with these verse inscriptions from the House of Gaius Julius Polybius (IX.13.1-3). #AGOTD #Graffiti

The inscriptions themselves would seem to commemorate gifts offered by Poppaea and Nero to the goddess Venus, perhaps at the time of the emperor's visit to Pompeii in AD 64.
The first records a gift of Poppaea:

"munera Poppaea misit Veneri sanctissimae berullum helenumque / unio mixtus erat"

'Poppaea sent as gifts to most sacred Venus a beryl, an ear-drop pearl - oh, and a bloody big pearl besides!'
