HIC HABITAT FELICITAS RELIEF
Hic Habitat Felicitas relief, I century a.C.
This relief found in a wall in Pompei, shows us a phallus with the caption: "Hic habitat felicitas", Here lives happiness. Romans use to link happiness with fertility. They also were very superstitius and they never doubt to hang these symbols at the entrance of their homes to avoid evil eye or the envious looks of other neighbours not that wealthy.
