Byzantine

Late Antiquity, Early Christian and Byzantine Art, Antiquities and Numismatics

Soon after the Edict of Milan was signed by Constantine the Great and Licinius in 313, and Theodosius I proclaimed Christianity to be the official state religion of the Roman Empire, Christian symbolism and iconography started to dominate the official art and coinage. The clandestine use of Christian symbols in the private context, be it tomb decoration or the objects of daily life, could now also be presented in full view, although pagan iconography continued to be used for centuries and partially underwent a transformation into Christian context (the Victoria e.g. became a winged Angel). We from the Alte Roemer Gallery offer you artifacts from the exciting Late Antiquity or Early Christian Era, but also Byzantine artifacts and coins. In our online shop you will find authentic Byzantine jewelry, late Roman oil lamps with Christian symbols, Early Christian and Coptic antiquities, Late Antiquity numismatics and much more. It would be our pleasure to work with you individually on your personal collection, and help you find special pieces that you would like to add to it. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time via email or using our contact form. Correspondence is welcome in English, German, Italian, French, Russian or Japanese.
