Nero's rotating banquet hall discovered.

Who's got big balls?  Nero's got big balls...

The Roman emperor Nero had a rotating banquet hall that's just been uncovered by archaeologists.  It was a 50-foot room on a 13-foot pillar and four huge balls that were apparently driven by a constant water flow to keep it moving.

I had heard about that room, but never believed it was real!
