Some people spend a lifetime to get these, and I got it complete and shiny for only £12.99 I don't see what the fuss is about! Joking aside, this is from the British Museum's souvenir shop, and the real reason behind this thread is to give you a mini review and a glimpse of a really nice Nero exhibition that the museum is currently holding. Photography was allowed, so I took plenty and I will share some with you. My interest in ancients started after my last visit to that museum, when I walked into the Coin Craft shop across the street. Returning to the museum, brought back some nice memories. As we are living in Covid times, attendance is not what it used to be and as I visited in the morning the museum looked and felt rather empty. It was a very well done exhibition. Very modern set up and interesting. The main theme was for the visitors to decide for themselves if Nero was as bad as the contemporary writers make him up to be. Nero as a child. What I felt though, is that the exhibition may have been designed by a Nero fanboy. Although the visitors are being constantly asked to make up their own minds, I thought that the narrative emphasized a lot on Nero's positive aspects and events like the fire, the persecutions and the death's of Poppaea and Agrippina weren't discussed to the level I would have liked. Overall though, I really enjoyed it and it is definitely worth a visit if you are based around London or planning to visit soon. And of course, this exhibition aside, the British Museum is of great interest to the numismatist in general. I walked around the main rooms after I finished and was not disappointed. And as a bonus, when I walked out I discovered that there was a Roman corner with gladiatorial demonstrations and various show n'tell sessions. The Nero exhibition was very interesting from a numismatic point of view with some great examples. In my next post I will share some highlights.
