Never steal from the Church

Post by system1988 »

Hi all

I am sending you this epigrahy 1) because it's in English and 2) It's a bit funny.

In 4th BC, some building comissioners dared to steal material (the first tried to smuggle the material putting it under the breasts of his slave) that was supposed to be used as ornament for the temple and made some sketchy work on the site they stole it from as well. They were trialed and their names were inscribed on stone steles and I suppose they lost their "lisences" for ever.
