Ancient art daily

Dear valued customers,

dear friends of ancient art,

We from the Alte Roemer Gallery team wish you and your families a happy, healthy and successful new year!

It probably will sound familiar: the beginning of the winter season is hardly noticed, the days are flying by and when we realize that Christmas is approaching we are surprised how fast the last year has passed. But as soon as the holiday season is over, everything changes. The short days and long evenings seem to crawl and spring seems to be incredibly far away. To "sweeten" this time, giving you something to really look forward to every day, we have come up with a very special present:

Starting today and until Easter, every evening at 8:15 pm German time you will find in our online gallery a newly added ancient artefact. Beautiful black and red figure Greek vases, polychrome Apulian pottery, sculptures made from stone and terra cotta, ancient bronze weapons, Roman glass, treasures from the Ancient Near East and many more will await you. Just visit our gallery and let it be a surprise which treasure you will discover.

Last but not least: if you wonder why you do not find any new object, it is probably already sold and is listed in our archive. So do not wait too long...

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.

Ancient art from Western Asia, Egypt and Rome

We added numerous ancient artefacts to the online gallery during the last days. Pieces we found particularly stunning include a zoomorphic vessel from Iron Age Iran, the central part of a mummy cartonnage depicting the four sons of Horus and Kheper-Ra, as well as a Roman ribbed glass bowl made of beautiful aubergine glass. Have a look and enjoy.

Roman gold coins and oil lamps from the Holy Land

We are happy to announce various new items in our online shop. Among them are Roman aurei as well as one rare gold coin from Roman republican times. There is also a group of oil lamps from the Holy Land, dating to classical antiquity and Late Antiquity. The lamps are described in detail in our catalogue of ancient oil lamps of the Mediterranean World.
