Bicchieri di Ostia

My mom and I went to Ostia Antica today because we were far too lazy (and cheap) to take the train down to Pompeii. Turns out, Ostia is nearly as cool as Pompeii and is only a 20-minute train ride (that's free if you have a metro pass) and a 4 euro entry fee.

Pictures are posted here. But my favorite thing of the day was the set of glasses that my mom bought me from the gift shop. Only true classics nerds can appreciate them, but here you go. Behold the beauty of shot glasses with opus reticulatum, opus incertum, and opus lateritium.



My mom bought a t-shirt with the numbers on it in Latin, Greek, Etruscan, and standard Arabic. Also very cool.
