Researchers discover thermopolium -fast-food ancestor- in Pompeii

Researchers have discovered a thermopolium -- the ancestor of the street fast-food in Ancient Rome -- in Pompeii, decorated with polychrome patterns and in an exceptional state of preservation. The counter, frozen by volcanic ash, had been partially exhumed in 2019, but the work was extended to preserve the site, located in a very busy neighborhood. AND PHOTOSN°8XR7W6
