Abstract: We consider the polynomial algebra $H^*(\mathbf{C} P^\infty \times \mathbf{C} P^\infty; \mathbf{F}_p)$ as a module over the mod $p$ Steenrod algebra, $\mathcal{A}(p)$, $p$ being an odd prime. We give a minimal set of generators consisting of monomials and characterise all such `monomial bases'.
