Christian Graffiti on the Palatine Hill

read all comments

1 Douglas Boin = "Found in Rome, on the central Palatine hill of the city, the graffito (or scratched wall drawing) has been dated to the third century A.D. It depicts a man named "Alexamenos" praying to a donkey-headed crucified man and is thought to be mocking Alexamenos' identity as a Christian. The uninformed notion that Christians worshipped a donkey has a long history in antiquity. The same rumor circulated about Jewish people, as well."
