Wow, those colours are really bright! Archaeological finds can seem so grey and brown sometimes...
I had some uni lectures about Hadrian's Wall a couple of years ago. Wasn't there a sort of plaque commemorating the building of one section by a Greek garrison? Hmmm, they were 9am lectures, and I slept through most of them - can you tell?
The lectures were about Scottish archaeology though, so were focused more on those nasty northern tribes who halted the Roman advance.
One more thing - could the name AELIUS inscribed on the cup have anything to do with Newcastle? It was known as Pons Aelius, right?
