FTFA: A total of 13 phallus carvings have been found at the site, near Hexham, more than any other location along Hadrian's Wall

Huh. Does anybody have a Biggus Dickus joke to go here?

Roman epigraphy specialists recognised the message, found at the Roman site of Vindolanda, as a mangled version of the words Secundinus cacator, which translates into English as "Secundinus, the shiatter".

Congratulations, history boffins. You've found a shiatpost.

I do like a good Latin story. What I don't understand is the assumption that someone else wrote it as an insult to Secundinus. Maybe he carved it himself to brag about his shiatting prowess or to leave his mark for posterity. 'Secundinus shat here.'

Pissed off chimps sometimes protest by grabbing their buttocks, then making throwing motions towards other apes.

Our shared ancestor probably did something like that too. Shiatposting precedes mankind.

It featured words written about someone called Secundinus beside an image of a phallus - typically used as a Roman symbol of good luck or fertility.

Was it though? Or did they just think drawing dicks was funny?

Yes. The Romans often used numbers as names or nicknames, indicating either the order in which a family's children are born, the month in which a child was born or simply as a common name derived from one of the first two categories.

I primus
II secundus
III tertius
IV quartus
V quintus
VI sextus
VII septimus
VIII octavus
IX nonus

I watched this movie with my kids, one of whom was taking Latin.  I almost had to get him his inhaler after this scene.

Archaeologists can find most viking writings at latrines.

Apparently carving insults into wood, which was left to be found, was considered good humour then as now.

Could possibly be a directional sign: "This way to the #2 shiatter"
In this case, the phallus points the way, more appropriate than a finger.

Secundinus the shiatter was the first husband of Incontinentia Buttocks before she divorced him for Biggus Dickus.
