Western Asiatic Achaemenid Phiale Mesomphalos with Bust

by TimeLine Auctions

September 11, 2015, 9:00 AM BST

London, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £1,000 - £1,400

Description: 5th-3rd century BC. A silver footed dish with flared base, thickened parcel-gilt rim, incised parcel-gilt design of a royal bust with crown, crescentic ornaments to the chest. 256 grams, 20cm (8"). From an important private London collection; formed in the 1970s and 1980s. Classical Greek sources describe how gold and silver vessels were commonly used by the Persian court and the aristocracy, and that wine was an integral part of Persian banquets. After the battle of Plataea in 479 BC the camp of the Persian general Mardonius was sacked by the Greek army and Herodotus describes the huge numbers of silver and gold vessels that were carried off. Ancient sources also tell us that it was common practice for the king and the nobility to give gold and silver vessels to individuals as a sign of their favour towards them. Shallow lobed bowls such as this are a particularly distinctive type of Achaemenid tableware and the depiction of a king or noble would indicate a prestigious origin.

Roman Advancing Bull Statue

by TimeLine Auctions

September 9, 2015, 9:00 AM BST

London, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £6,000 - £8,000

Description: 1st-2nd century AD. A bronze figure of a bull in advancing pose, traces of gilding; mounted on a custom-made stand. 2.2 kg, 12cm tall including stand (4 3/4"). Property of a gentleman; acquired old French collection, with copy of French Cultural Goods Passport number 055150. This figure represents the Egyptian Apis bull, the earthly manifestation of the creator god Ptah. The bull was chosen as a calf and was recognised as divine by a number of markings on its body; Herodotus writes, The Apis-calf has distinctive marks: it is black, with a white square on its forehead, the image of an eagle on its back, the hair on its tail double, and a scarab under its tongue. The animal was venerated in Memphis, the cult centre of Ptah, having a special shrine within the temple complex and where it served as an oracle. The bull was taken on procession during certain festivals and holy days and its presence outside of the temple was seen as a blessing to the land and people. When the Apis bull died it was identified with the god Osiris and the whole of the country went into mourning; its body was mummified and buried in a necropolis at Saqqara where the oldest known burial dates back to Amenhotep III (1391-1353 BC). The worship of the sacred bull continued to be popular during the Ptolemaic and Roman periods where it was associated with the god Serapis, a Greek deity similar to Osiris and whose cult centre was in the city of Alexandria. Serapis won an important place in the Greek world, reaching Ancient Rome with the goddess Isis whose mystery cult was one of the most influential in the empire. Small images of the sacred Apis bull, such as this example, were often placed into household shrines, or Lararia, along with other deities and examples have been found at Pompeii and Herculaneum. The cult survived until 385 AD, when Christians destroyed the Serapeum of Alexandria, and subsequently the cult was forbidden by the Theodosian Decree.

Roman Statuette of Isis-Aphrodite

by TimeLine Auctions

September 9, 2015, 9:00 AM BST

London, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £15,000 - £20,000

Description: 2nd century AD. A bronze statuette of the goddess Isis-Aphrodite standing nude in the classic pose of the Capitoline Venus with left hand over her genitals and right hand raised to her chest; the head slightly turned to the left, centre-parted hair tied in a chignon; armlets to the upper arms; a hole behind the diadem to accept a separate Egyptian crown of Isis; mounted on a marble pedestal stand. 876 grams, 25cm (9 3/4"). From the private collection of Louis de Clercq (1826-1901); thence by descent. Cf. B.S. Ridgway, Hellenistic Sculpture I, 1990, p. 355-356, Taf. 181 - B. Accompanied by an Art Loss Register certificate. Isis-Aphrodite is a form of the great goddess Isis that emphasises the iconographic and fertility aspects associated with Aphrodite (Venus in the Roman pantheon). Herodotus identified Isis with Demeter, but in the early Hellenistic period, she was identified with Aphrodite. The worship of Isis reached Rome early in the first century BC, and was a mystery religion requiring initiation. By the early first century AD, the cult was flourishing throughout the empire. (Adkins, L. and Adkins R.A. Dictionary of Roman Religion.) In Egyptian religion, Isis was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patroness of nature and magic. She was known as protector of the dead and goddess of children, often depicted with her son Horus. Venus was an important goddess associated with beauty, desire, fertility and prosperity, known in Roman religion under numerous cult titles. However, the goddess Venus, like many of the other Roman deities, was identified with her Greek counterpart Aphrodite and adopted most of her mythology and iconography. She was also a divine ancestor of the Roman people through her son Aeneas, who fled from Troy to Italy. This syncretic goddess is a beautiful example of exchange between Graeco-Roman and Egyptian cultures, resulting in connection of two most important goddesses of fertility and maternity in one universally recognisable figure.

Condition Report: Very fine condition; Isis crown absent.

Greek Inscribed Curse Tablet

by TimeLine Auctions

September 9, 2015, 9:00 AM BST

London, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £300 - £400

Description: 5th-1st century BC. A rectangular flat-section tablet of sheet lead with incised text in twenty-six lines (with some superscript characters), a ?????????? or curse tablet, originally rolled into a tight scroll; unrolled and mounted in a glazed modern frame. 573 grams, 30.5cm including frame (12"). Property of a Surrey collector; acquired in the early 1970s. See Eidinow, E. Oracles, Curses and Risk Among the Ancient Greeks, Oxford, 2007 for a discussion of the uses of such tablets. In the ancient world it was common to curse an enemy by writing a spell onto a tablet, usually made from lead, and then dedicate it to a god or spirit. Known in Latin as defixiones, over a thousand are known from many parts of the Graeco-Roman world and date from the fifth century BC to the fifth century AD. They are commonly found at cemeteries, in wells, at shrines and temples, as well as sacred springs such as that dedicated to Sulis Minerva at Bath. Often dedicated to gods of the underworld they commonly deal with justice and revenge, sex and love magic, legal disputes, and winning a bet at the games. They are an important insight into the minds of people in the Classical past.

Condition Report: Fine condition.

Roman Gold Bracelet with Bacchant Cameo

by TimeLine Auctions

September 9, 2015, 9:00 AM BST

London, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £12,000 - £16,000

Description: 2nd-3rd century AD. A penannular shank formed with twisted hollow-cast gold rods, ribbed terminal collars and hinge closure supporting a dished plaque with raised cell and inset onyx cameo profile bust of the Bacchant (priestess of Bacchus) or the god Bacchus himself, with draped chiton and floral wreath to the brow. 34 grams, 62mm (2 1/2"). From a noble Russian family by descent. A Bacchant was the Roman name for the Greek Maenad, the female followers of the god Bacchus (Greek Dionysus) the god of the grape harvest, wine making and wine, of ritual madness, fertility, theatre and religious ecstasy. The name Bacchae comes from the Latin word for fox skin which was a favourite item of clothing for the god; the Greek Maenad means the raving ones due to the state of ecstatic frenzy created through a combination of dancing and intoxication; the goal was to achieve a state of ecstasy in which the celebrants’ souls were temporarily freed from their earthly bodies and were able to commune with Bacchus/Dionysus and gain a glimpse of, and a preparation for, what they would someday experience in the afterlife. During these rites, the maenads would dress in fawn skins and carry a thyrsus, a long stick wrapped in ivy or vine leaves and tipped with a pinecone. They would weave ivy-wreaths around their heads or wear a bull helmet in honour of their god, and often handle or wear snakes. The mystery cult of Bacchus was based on a seasonal death-rebirth theme and celebrated that which was outside civilized society and a return to primordial nature. The presence of a Bacchant on this bracelet could indicate that the owner was a devotee of the god and an initiate of his mysteries.

Condition Report: Very fine condition, small chip to background.
