Νέα αρχαιολογικά ευρήματα από το μνημείο της ναυμαχίας στο Άκτιο, τη μάχη που άλλαξε την πορεία της ιστορίας του αρχαίου κόσμου, φαίνεται να αλλάζουν τα όσα μέχρι σήμερα γνωρίζαμε για αυτήν. Αυτό ισχυρίζεται ένα πρόσφατο άρθρο της εφημερίδας Independent, όπου παρουσιάζονται αυτές οι νέες αρχαιολογικές ανακαλύψεις:

Ένα νέο thermopolium με τοιχογραφίες ήρθε στο φως στην αρχαία Πομπηία. Η αρχαιολογική σκαπάνη έφερε στο φως περισσότερα από 150 thermopolia στην πόλη, τα οποία ήταν τόπος αγοράς τροφής για τις φτωχότερες ομάδες του πληθυσμού, οι οποίοι δεν είχαν τρόπο παρασκευής τροφής στα σπίτιά τους.
