Christies Antiquities Auction Dec

If you would like to spend a wonderful 20 minutes looking through some stunning ancient art coming up to auction, thumb through this e-catalog.

A window shopping exercise, of course

There are some true gems spread throughout. Lot 179 comes to mind immediately.

Or this Roman Silver Bowl

Thanks for posting. You could stock a museum from this one sale. I wish I were rich! Is this from your collection?

That bowl/plate would be my favorite too - those horses are great! I'm not so sure about the identification of the figure in the quadriga as Helios, though; given the raised hand, without torch, it looks more like Sol Invictus to me.
