Details

This type of drinking cup, depicting flying phalli, was popular in Roman Britain during the third and fourth centuries. The symbol of the phallus is a representation of the deity Fascinus, who was believed to bring good luck to those who embraced his phallic emblem.  May every sip you take from this cup bring you good luck! 

This particularly magnificent design is based on a cup that was excavated in Cambridgeshire and is amongst the treasures that grace the display cases in the British Museum. 

Made primarily in the Nene Valley around present-day Peterborough, the dark colour coat finish made use of materials from the Romano British Iron industries in the area.  These pots were distributed widely throughout the province of Britannia and are found extensively on Hadrian's Wall.

Production

This replica Roman pot has been hand-made in Northumberland by Potted History, based on an original artefact.  It has been fired to a temperature of between 800 & 1000 Centigrade, to emulate the same techniques that the original potters would have employed nearly two thousand years ago. This process often results in variations of the surface colour and texture, as is common with the original Roman Pottery.  As each pot varies, you may not receive the exact cup in the images. You can be sure that due to the variations caused by the firing and hand-making process, your pot will be one-of-a-kind.
