The satirical Alexamenos graffito

Onolatry is worship of the donkey: old Oriental and African worship attributed also to the Jewish people who travelled in the desert.[need quotation to verify]

In Imperial Rome, the charge of onolatry was used by the pagans to taunt the first Christians and Jews.[need quotation to verify] A famous example of this is the Alexamenos graffito.
