Eric Scythe was a curator at the British Museum and friend of Henry Walton Jones, Senior.


Eric Scythe studied at Oxford University where he was friends with Henry Walton Jones, Senior.

By January 1914, Scythe had become a curator for the British Museum. That month, he was visited at the musuem by Jones and his son Indiana when an incident between the boy and another led to destruction of the Pietroasa bowl.

Scythe took the Joneses aside and revealed that the bowl was actually a replica, as the real artifact had been stolen by the notorious thief Markos Kourou. The conversation led to Henry and his son heading to Greece on the heels to Kourou to recover the original artifact.
