Egyptian Slave Auction

Egyptian Slave Auction

Today they’re selling Greeks over at this slave auction in ancient Egypt.

I know slavery is a grisly and touchy subject in the study of history, especially from an American vantage point (for obvious reasons). But alas, those were different times with different values taken for granted. At least the Egyptians didn’t pretend to run the Land of the Free, which is more than could be said for 19th century Americans.
