Based on beakers of Flavian date (late 1st century AD), particularly vessels in the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Newark Museum, New Jersey.

The almond knob or lotus pattern is often interpreted as a stylised representaton of Hercules' wooden club. Most examples are amber or pale green in colour, although cobalt blue vessels are known.

Several examples of this beaker, made by us, can be seen in the film 'Gladiator'.
