Museum of the Roman Forum (Thessaloniki):

Encaustic(?) painting on a marble slab that acted as a “poster”. The slab was an invitation to hunting and gladiatorial contests. It depicts scenes from the preparation of a sacrifice and contests involving gladiators and wild animals. These “advertizing” slabs would be thrown away after the events and used as building materials.

(249 A.D)
