Cave Canem

Published: Wednesday, October 5, 2016

El Capitano has been off again and once again didn't take me but at least he brought me a prezzie.  It's a tile showing an illustration from the entrance of a house in Pompei, the town which was buried by ash when Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD.  The original mosaic tiling has been perfectly preserved under the ash for over 1500 years.  It says "Cave Canem" which El Capitano says is Latin for "Beware of the Dog".  How cool is that! 

I'm going to stick it on the front of the house.
