A sculpture in the shape of a male genital organ half a meter long was found by archaeologists in an ancient Roman villa. It has not yet been clarified what its origin is and who lived in the same place where it was carved.
The ancient phallus, which is about 50 cm long, was carved into the wall of an ancient royal house and appeared to the eyes of the visitors in its entirety. Experts claim that the penis is considered a symbol of good luck and fertility, and its image was often carved in houses and military bases during wars during the days of the Roman Empire.
“The phallus we found is one of the largest discovered so far,” said one of the historians. The image of the genital was discovered at the “El Higurón” excavation site in the province of Córdoba in southern Spain. The director of the excavations, Anders Rolder, explained: “In the past, it was common to use the shape of the penis as amulets. Soldiers carried a small phallus amulet with them as a symbol of masculinity, but the one we located here is unusually large.”
To this day, amulets in the shape of a male genital organ can be found around the world. There are believers who still use it to determine the gender of the newborn, a key to a good livelihood and more.
