Oh, those Athenians…
customer and a prostitute, circa 350BC

The Ancient Greeks may have made cash on the side by turning parts of their homes into bars and brothels, researchers have found.
Excavations at sites across the Greek mainland have uncovered hundreds of drinking cups and erotic objects in homes dating back to the 5th and 4th centuries BC, suggesting rooms and courtyards were used for dubious commercial practices.
The discovery may solve the longstanding mystery of why archaeologists have found so little evidence of bawdy Greek tavernas, despite featuring so prominently in classical literature.”
