A rare piece from the late 2nd-early 3rd Century A.D. is available at the highest estimation of US$1,200,000. Another item of interest is a roman marble portrait head from the Emperor Septimius Severus. Severus was a successful warrior and an administrator who ruled the Roman empire from 193 to 211 A.D.
