Alexamenos graffito

A friend pointed this interesting graffito out to me yesterday. Hadn't heard or seen of it before. I initially thought it a horse's head but apparently it's a donkey's. The Greek translates as "Alexamenos worships [his] god." It was found, and is now housed, on the Palatine in Rome.
