1. Flying Penis

    Another oddment courtesy of the Romans:

    This penis is made out of animal bone and has wings on it. Phallic symbols, including versions with wings, are commonly seen throughout the Roman Empire. [Source]

    Apparently, these Roman genitalia carvings were meant to protect the possessor from evil. John Pearce, a lecturer in archaeology at King’s College London, analyzed some of the Roman artifacts [found along with this penis] and concluded:

    “One theory is that those scenes that show sexual activity have an apotropaic power, because they make you laugh so that wards off the evil eye.” [Source]
