Don’t Dick Around With A Sex Curse
Archaeologists excavating Cyprus’ old city kingdom of Amathus discovered a tabled inscribed with … an ancient sex curse!
“A curse is inscribed in Greek on a lead tablet and part of it reads: ‘May your penis hurt when you make love’,” Pierre Aubert, head of Athens Archaeological School in Greece told the English language Cyprus Weekly.
He said the tablet showed a man standing holding something in his right hand that looks like an hour glass. The inscription dates back to the 7th century AD when Christianity was well established on the island, leading the French professor to surmise that it referred to the activity of witchcraft or shamans surviving from the pagan era.
