Throw In The Towel

To celebrate the winning entry in this year’s Costa-Fortune / Whisky-McNightly Greek Translation Prize, the joint organisers - Dorset Hellenic Institute [Hinton Parva], the Whisky-McNightly Foundation [Bradpole] and Threadbone Mediterranean Coach Tours Ltd [Botherhampton] - are offering readers an exclusive "Retribution" tea towel.

Designed for home use only, the tea towel is, according to its manufacturer [Threadbone Synthetic Linens Ltd], hardwearing and the perfect solution to those tiresome post pot wash drying problems.

The two-sided high quality faux linen towel features the full poem ΤΙΜΩΡΙΑ by 3rd century BC author Thrupecèdes of Syracusa in its original form on one side and - on the reverse - the same poem in a sensitive translatation by Prize Winning University of Afpuddle Senior Research Associate Dr Rosetta Stone.

Purchasers can choose - on an ad hoc basis [ie as and when the fancy takes them] - which side to use since the high quality non-fade, non-run fabric is equally absorbent - recto and verso!!


The Dorset Hellenic Institute [Hinton Parva] / Whisky-McNightly Foundation [Bradpole] /Threadbone Mediterranean Coach Tours Ltd [Botherhampton] Costa-Fortune / Whisky-McNightly Greek Translation Prize award winning "Retribution" tea towel is not available from any High Street Shop and can be obtained only and exclusively from Threadbone Telesales Ltd via its worldwide interweb tele-portal.

Towels cost £12.50 each or 3 for £45. All major credit cards accepted. The Threadbone Telesales Ltd worldwide interweb tele-portal is currently unable to accept cash.
