Exclusive to the British Museum, a set of coasters inspired by the text found on the Rosetta Stone.

This set contains four coasters; two in black with contrasting white text, and two in white with black text. The coasters are made from plastic, and feature a protective cork backing.

About the Rosetta Stone:

Soldiers in Napoleon’s army discovered the Rosetta Stone in 1799 while digging the foundations of an addition to a fort near the town of el-Rashid (Rosetta). Exhibited in the British Museum since 1802, the Rosetta Stone was the key to unlocking the ability to read and translate ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. The Stone contains the same decree in three different scripts, and scholars were able to use the Greek and Egyptian Demotic sections to decipher the ancient hieroglyphs. The text contains a decree passed by priests in 196 BC to honour King Ptolemy V for his services to Egypt.

A handsome gift inspired by ancient history.
