An unexpected sexual curse has been uncovered by archaeologists at Cyprus's old city kingdom of Amathus, on the island's south coast near Limassol, according to a newspaper on Friday.

"A curse is inscribed in Greek on a lead tablet and part of it reads: 'May your penis hurt when you make love'," Pierre Aubert, head of Athens Archaeological School in Greece told the English language Cyprus Weekly.


Ouch!

I wonder if whoever wrote the curse was a feminist or a jealous ex

I think it was some angry lover that wrote it after finding that his beloved was having an affair behind his or her back.


Perhaps may your penis fall off after making love would have been more scary.

One I remember from another tribal group was, "may a small animal hunt your organ at night", that one always may me wince.

Perhaps not a curse but a warning of some ancient STD...

Ok, well maybe a curse
I wonder who's home they found it in? Perhaps it was a females home who while physically attractive had learned that she contracted some sort of venereal disease and was just warning others of it.

Might not have been a woman, might have been a guy ticked off at someone else' prowess, or someone elses luck. Maybe a guy got the gal the fellow wanted. Who knows.
