Greek Antiquities
Hellenistic Greek, Bronze Relief Ring Fragment, Eastern Mediterranean, 3rd - 1st Century B.C.

|Jewelry|, |Hellenistic| |Greek,| |Bronze| |Relief| |Ring| |Fragment,| |Eastern| |Mediterranean,| |3rd| |-| |1st| |Century| |B.C.|NEW
This bronze ring fragment is very similar to the referenced ring fragment in the British Museum, seen to the right. It is clearly the same woman depicted and they are very likely from the same engraver and workshop. The British Museum piece is similarly broken and missing almost the entire hoop. In fact, all known examples of this ring type are broken in this same manner. Perhaps wearing the ring indicated the wearer had the authority of the queen and these rings were officially recalled and made unwearable when this authority expired.ring_fragment
AS97046. cf. BM Collection 1917.0501.1267 (very similar ring fragment), obverse high relief portrait of a woman facing left, draped and wearing her hair in a bun at the back (perhaps a Ptolemaic queen, either Berenike II or Arsinoe II); $560.00 SALE |PRICE| $500.00 ON RESERVE


Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt, Glass Floral Inlay Fragment, 3rd - 1st Century B.C.

|Egyptian| |Antiquities|, |Ptolemaic| |Kingdom| |of| |Egypt,| |Glass| |Floral| |Inlay| |Fragment,| |3rd| |-| |1st| |Century| |B.C.|
This small piece of glass may not seem like much but larger pieces from the master craftsmen of this workshop are very rare. Even a small fragment like this one is museum quality and suitable for an important collection.
AA32380. cf. Lightfoot NMS 492 - 493, Choice fragment, floral inlay glass fragment, 1.9 cm (3/4"), partial flower with three white pedals and center of yellow and clear dots, black background; from the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years; ex Robert Haas collection; rare; $240.00 SALE |PRICE| $216.00
 


Greek, Athens(?), Miniature Pottery Oil Lamp, c. late 6th - mid 5th century B.C.

|Oil| |Lamps|, |Greek,| |Athens(?),| |Miniature| |Pottery| |Oil| |Lamp,| |c.| |late| |6th| |-| |mid| |5th| |century| |B.C.|
The referenced lamp from Isthmia is a very similar miniature lamp with the same shape and same dull brown glaze on buff pottery. Broneer identifies it as, "probably a local [Athens] product." Broneer also writes, "There are no close parallels from the Athenian Agora. See Corinth IV, ii, p. 137, fig 61, which, however is later, as shown by the longer nozzle" On later examples of this type, the nozzle is long enough that the wick hole does not extend into the shoulder or discus.
AH21462. Broneer Isthmia type IV, 59 (very similar), cf. Corinth IV 61 (longer nozzle, later), Getty Museum 7 (same, pink clay, S. Italy), Choice, complete and intact, much of brown slip lost (visible in photo), 2.8 cm (1 1/8") high, 5.8 cm (2 1/4") long; wheel-turned, partial dull brown slip on slightly pink buff pottery, round, deep, flat bottomed bowl with sides narrowing slightly to a groove setting off a low round disc base, slightly concave discus, no handle, small short projecting nozzle with wick hole extending into the discus, large fill hole; ex Edgar L. Owen; $160.00 SALE |PRICE| $144.00
