(ZEROHEDGE) – Archaeologists working in Rome's lost city of Pompeii unearthed a 2,000-year-old fast-food stand providing new clues about the ancient Roman's eating habits.
The elegant snack bar counter, known as a "thermopolium," which is Latin for a commercial space where hot food is sold, was discovered in the archaeological park's Regio V area. According to Reuters, the area is off-limits to the public and was inaugurated over the weekend.
