Playing the Cornu de Pompeii

Playing the Cornu de Pompeii

We’ve seen alot of unusual instruments, but this is the first time we’ve come across the Cornu de Pompeii. Evidence of this G-shaped horn were found in the ruins of Pompeii, and María Ruíz and Abraham Cupeiro built a replica of it so we could hear what it might have sounded like. Listen to more here.

These artful playing cards from Montenzi feature imagery inspired by the ancient Roman tile floors. Their backs have tiled patterns, while their fronts reveal shapes and images with the well-worn look of millions of footsteps.

LEGO Ideas Roman Warship

LEGO Ideas Roman Warship

LEGO builder Iyan Ha created this detailed model of an ancient Roman warship. Other than the fabric sails and capes, dyed ropes, and custom stickers, every part is an off-the shelf LEGO brick. We love the colorful shields along the sides of the ship, and the armor on the minifigs. Show your support for the design on LEGO Ideas.
