Dubai United Arab Emirates:-- Amulets that were used for magic were found during excavations in the Roman city that was buried by a volcanic eruption about two thousand years ago.

Pompeii, the Italian archaeological site, extends over an area of ​​more than 44 hectares, close to the city of Naples, and no more than a third of the antiquities found there were detected.

Archaeologists found in one of the boxes dozens of rings, small statues and amulets for fortune, made of ivory, bronze, porcelain, or amber, but these amulets were apparently not sufficient to protect the ancient city from the volcano Vesuvo that buried it in October of the year 79 AD, i.e. Six months later than what was previously thought to be the date of its eruption

In December 2020, archaeologists discovered what is known as a thermopolium, a point of sale for "fast food" that was very common in the Roman world. This thermobolium was found to be in excellent preservation as it was frozen by volcanic ash.

This table, which is decorated with polychrome decorations, is located in a once very crowded area, at the intersection of "Al-Aras Street" and "Al-Shorfat Street".

In addition to a mural representing Nereids (a mermaid) on a horse, researchers found brightly painted animals, most notably poultry and ducks that were eaten with wine or hot drinks. In the recesses of the table, researchers found inscriptions representing types of food that could provide valuable information about the eating habits of Pompeii. At the time of the eruption of Vesuvo in the year 79 AD.

Inside the clay pots, part of a duck bone, as well as remains of meat, fish and snails were found. Several ingredients were cooked together, as in the Spanish paella dish.
