  • In Ancient Rome thermopolia (singular thermopolium) were small shops had L-shaped counters into which large storage vessels were sunk, which would contain either hot or cold food. They are linked to the absence of kitchens in many dwellings and the ease with which people could purchase prepared foods - just as in modern times. Eating out was also an important aspect of socialising.
