Ancient art with outstanding provenance

Dear friends of ancient art, during the last weeks we could include objects with very special provenance in our online gallery. A lekythos from the Toledo museum with more than 100 years of collecting history, a Serapis bust from the collection of Egyptologist Joachim Menant. Also a group of Western Asiatic seals with scientific notes by Professor Mayer-Opificius. Expect many more antiquities, whose recent past is just as stunning as the period they originate from.
