Advertising in the Louvre

Advertising in the Louvre

Originally uploaded by Thomas Roche

I ran across this image, which has a caption that bewilders me. If this is what the inscription really says, eeyow… and if it’s not, someone is a brilliant hoaxster.

"Black-figured lekythos with the inscription: ‘buy me and you’ll get a good bargain,’ ca. 550 BC, Louvre."

Seems like something Bugs Bunny would run across in a Warner Bros cartoon circa 1955.

From Wikipedia.
