Myth is dominated by the transformation of man to mythical beast. #AncientGreek #mythology is rich in accounts of serpents as adversaries of heroes or gods. Think of Ovid’s myth of Cadmus where the slain #Serpent’s teeth sown into the ground grow to become armed men. 
On this #Corinthian alabastron, made around 600 BC two sphinxes flank a sinuous snake. For more fantastic objects like this please visit us at Queen Square or at www.brlsi.org

Tonight! If you've just come out from the @pumproombath then you might be interested to find out more about the  #Romans in #Somerset? In 2010 a huge hoard of #Roman coins was discovered near #Frome. More than 750 of the #coins were minted during the reign of a little-known Roman ruler of Britain in the mid-3rd century AD: Marcus Aurelius Carausius. Join historian #SimonElliott as he illuminates you on spectacular rise of #RomanBritainsPirateKing.
Mon 25 July 7:30 pm 🎟 £2-5
