From a marble torso of Narcissus to a volute-krater (an Athenian vase), Christie’s upcoming auction presents a diverse group of ancient art, antiques, and ethnographic pieces. The 63 curated items include ancient jewelry and classical relief sculptures.
A Roman marble relief with the Dioscuri is the lot with the highest estimated value (US$800,000). The work is a depiction of the twins of Leda from Greek mythology. A similar item from Ancient Greece is a gold oak wreath. The piece is believed to be from the late Classical to early Hellenistic period (Circa 4th-3rd Century B.C.).
