Ancient dildo unearthed in Turkey

Last week, a church. This week a dildo has been unearthed in ancient Myra in Turkey.

Swedish scientists were left scratching their heads at the object, which is around four inches long and .8 inches in diameter, as reported by LiveScience.



"Your mind and my mind wanders away to make this interpretation about what it looks like - for you and me, it signals this erected-penis-like shape," said one of the archaeologists working on the excavation in Antalya.

He suggested that as well as its obvious use, the object might a tool, such as to chip flakes of flint in ancient Turkey.

Archaeologists also discovered an ancient Roman personal care set at the site, in the Antalya district of Demre. A 1800-year-old pair of bronze tweezers and a manicure rasp were included in the set.

"Now, we are aware that the Lycian women of the Roman period 1,800 years ago in Turkey were living well-groomed by using a pair of tweezers, rasp and mirror," an archaologist said.
