London – British Museum (Ephesus Takeaway Menu)

I usually visit the British Museum three or four times a year, something which is a little difficult to do with the current virus situation, primarily because it’s shut. However, they’ve placed hundreds of thousands of images on their web-site, so this will have to do me for the moment. The images can be used non-commercially, as long as the British Museum is credited. So, this is their credit.

This is perhaps one of the more surprising items in the collections of the British Museum, a takeaway menu from Ephesus on Rose Lane in Norwich. It was given to the museum by St John Simpson, who is a curator specialising in items from the Middle East. Perhaps I’ll send the British Museum a nice JD Wetherspoon menu for their collection. Unsurprisingly, the museum hasn’t put this on display.
