The third installment of the ”Jentaculum” series. Jentaculum is the name of the first meal of the day for ancient Romans. The box is resting on

a “lararium” – shrines located in the house or garden of any ancient Roman household. Every morning families prayed and offered small gifts

of fruit and wine to the spirits. I’ve been luck enough to see this one firsthand in Pompeii. Remnants of a meal of eggs (rendered towards the front of the shrine) were found on a table in the Temple of Isis in another part of the city. On

a somewhat more interesting note, the Cocoa Puffs bird actually had a name – “Sonny.”
