Archaeologists have uncovered a two thousand and change-year-old footprint of a Roman soldier inside a stone wall surrounding the ancient city of Hippos
The find is interesting in that it suggests that soldiers helped build the wall. Or, at least, that this soldier did.
I for one don’t see what the big deal is. I’ve been putting my footprints all over the place for years, including on the property of scientists, and they could hardly care less. And what has a legionary got over me? Nothing, obviously. I’m taller, I’m not dead, and I have never attacked a Goth person. These are all important factors in the sort of popularity contest we should be having here.
An interesting side note: Hippos is located in what is now Israel, in an area described by the New Testament to have been the location where Jesus performed miracles. The footprint may indicate that Hippos received some sort of miracle involving comfortable-yet-practical footwear. That’s my theory anyway.
