roman beware of the dog sign at pompeii

While l was looking up Roman swear words the other day (don't ask), l found this little beauty. It is a 'Beware of the Dog' sign, made out of tiles and found at Pompeii. It shows that things haven't changed that much since the olden days, but l am a bit pissed off, as l have been to Pompeii, but never saw one of these. I was however, surprised how far away Mount Vesuvius is, as it really made you realise how powerful the eruption must have been, as l had always assumed it was right next to it. They must have crapped themselves when it all went off.
