    £9.99 Members' price *


    A cotton tote bag inspired by ancient Greek pots.

    Created exclusively for the British Museum, this large bag is based on original ancient Greek pottery in the Museum's collection.

    The design is taken from an Athenian hydria (a type of jug used for carrying water) dated to around 520BC and decorated in the black-figure technique. The Greek god of wine, Dionysos, is holding a vine branch, alongside Satyrs and Maenads. The writing is the potter's signature: 'Pamphaios made me'.

    The bag is made from thick cotton canvas - ideal for carrying books - and is printed in England.
