הֶאָנֹכִי הָרִיתִי, אֵת כָּל-הָעָם הַזֶּה--אִם-אָנֹכִי, יְלִדְתִּיהוּ

As far as I know, it's the first written instance of the "What am I, your mother?" phenomenon when dealing with perennial complainers.

inb4 the Pompeii shitposting wall

Also the Romans used to have signboards at road forks that were supposed to be used to post news and notes for travellers. Most of the these boards usually wound up with random notes and drawings of dicks instead.

Sounds a lot like Ancient 4chan.

Amazons were pretty much the first and most popular ancient memes. The idea of a tribe of warrior women both terrified and fascinated for centuries.

Unfortunate that tumblr is today's equivalent.

Not sure if it constitutes as a "meme" as such, but the Ancient Greeks did have a lot of cool idioms, like "θαλαττα kαι πυρ kαι γυνη, kαkα τρια".

"Sea, fire and woman, the three evils".

this.
in Pompeii there are graffitis like "he would suck your dick for free"
kek
but the first sexual intercourse depicted on a wall I think is in my town, the Addaura cave, pic related. Some scholars said it was the first bukkake ever represented lol

"Weep, you girls. My penis has given you up. Now it penetrates men’s behinds. Goodbye, wondrous femininity!"

One from the brothel of Innulus and Papilio.

More importantly, can we link memes to the decline of civilization?
>>
>>278132

If Pompeii is any indication, memes are an indicator of a civilization at its height

The decline of memes signals the end of culture
