Archaeologist Dr Andreas Vlachopoulos, of the University of Ioannina, has discovered some of the oldest known graffiti, carved into rock on the Greek island of Astypalaia. Estimated to be 2,500-years-old, the graffiti proclaims, "Nikasitimos was here mounting Timiona (Νικασίτιμος οἶφε Τιμίονα),” and features two enlarged phalluses. In addition to it being a rare insight into the private lives of ancient Greeks, Dr Vlachopoulos says it’s an even rarer record of a homosexual relationship, “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, emphasising the sexual act in a way that is highly unusual in erotic artwork.”

Trust men! If that were a woman's graffiti it would be something far more interesting to read
