Gold 100-Litrai

Attributed to Euainetos, a master die-cutter of Classical Sicily.  Occupying the obverse (ΣΥΡΑΚΟΣΙΩΝ, ‘of the Syracusans’) is the arresting profile of Arethusa, eponymous Naiad (water-nymph) of Ortygia’s sacred spring. She wears a short beaded necklace, amphorae-pendant earrings, and an ornamented fillet that holds her delicate curls, bedecked with flowers and lifted into an elaborately coiffed chignon.

Gold Stater

Although measuring only 16mm diameter and 13mm high, this is a superb example from the earliest pure gold coinage ever minted. As King of Lydia (560–546 BC), Kroisos was renowned for his learned court, and proverbial for his stupendous wealth. His emblem, the lion and bull locked in combat, symbolised strength and nobility, and alluded to Lydia’s border status between Greek West and Persian East. Circa 550-520 BC.

The Schuster Pyxis

Precisely carved in island-marble and wonderfully tactile, this translucent pyxis (ancient Greek for ‘box’) previously ennobled the collections of Charles Gillet and Madame Marion Schuster. Of exquisite beauty and craft, it belongs to the rare type marked out by its ‘pedestalled foot’.

Cycladic Bowl

Four thousand years of burial have preserved intact this large and elegant bowl or shallow plate, carved in translucent island marble. Its abundant traces of uninterpretable red pigment are yet another mystery of the enigmatic Bronze Age culture that crafted it.

Pair of Lion-Head Bracelets

Worked in heavy tubes of thick gold-sheet, these weighty bracelets of the later Classical Period taper toward expressive and sculpturally intricate lion-head finials.

East Greek Black-figure Dinos of the Ribbon Painter

In a figured band that runs the shoulder of this rare and entirely unrestored wine-mixing vessel of the Archaic Period, ranks of strong-bodied Greek spearmen, stylised and heroically nude, incline to the hunt of a pair of bristling and formidable wild boars, one of which bleeds from a thrust. The vase belongs to the Campana Group, and has been attributed to the Ribbon Painter.

Geometric Horse Votive

A masterpiece in miniature of the latter Eighth Century BCE, this sculpted bronze figurine interprets in stylised lines, curves, and angles the shapely anatomy and character of the horse. So exquisite a trophy will have served as a votive dedication in the sanctuary of a god.

Mycenaean Buffware Goblet

Torch-like whorls of murex seashells and bands in hues from light beige to lustrous black wreathe this graceful and delicate chalice, wrought in a light, creamy fabric of clay (also known as buffware) common to Corinth and the Peloponnese. The statuesque drinking-vessel is intact and beautifully preserved, evoking the powerful and opulent courts of Bronze Age Mycenaean Greece.
