Archaeologists have found an analogue of a modern energy bar in one of the poorly explored areas of the ancient city of Pompeii.
According to CBS News, the find was found in area five, partially excavated in 2019. The energy bar was on the Thermopoly counter that overlooked the street. In such, in ancient Rome, they sold hot food and wine.
The counter was decorated with frescoes depicting food served at the inn, and funny pictures with signatures in ancient Greek were painted on the walls.
The city of Pompeii was destroyed in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The city is well preserved under a layer of ash, so archaeologists find many different household items there.
