Origin[edit | edit source]

Vitellius was a Roman emperor. He was known for his gluttony and excess. Described as a tall, obese man, Vitellius would indulge in extravagant feasts several times a day. He was also thought to be generous and lenient, a trait which lead to the weakening of military discipline during his reign.

Effects[edit | edit source]

When one eats food off of the plate, the user will feel overcome with ravenous hunger. No matter how much food is consumed, the huger can't be sated.

Collection[edit | edit source]

Collected amongst several others by Dante Alighieri during the reign of Warehouse 8. To form a cover story, he wrote The Divine Comedy. The plate was his inspiration for the 3rd circle of Hell, where gluttons would suffer in an endless cold rain, knowing nothing but hunger as they wadded through excrement.
