The Ancient Jewelry, Weaponry, and Classical Art auction, presented by Pax Romana, will highlight the fossilized skeleton of a Psittacosaurus dinosaur. The lot comes with a nearly complete dinosaur skeleton, as well as fossilized materials from within its stomach. The Psittacosaurus is also known in English as a “parrot lizard.” There are over 400 known Psittacosaurus skeletons worldwide.
Also featured in this event are several helmets from ancient civilizations. These include an Illyrian bronze helmet, likely created between 700 and 600 BC. The Illyrians controlled territory across Central and Eastern Europe, including parts of modern-day Croatia and Slovenia. The Illyrian people were considered capable warriors and were often recruited to fight in regional conflicts. Interested bidders will also find a Greek winged helmet in the sale. This piece comes to auction with some repair and restoration work. Register to bid for this event on Bidsquare.
