Sale Overview

The October 2020 Antiquities sale offers a strong selection of works of art from across the ancient Mediterranean world. The objects represent ancient Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Near Eastern cultures and range in date from the 3rd millennium B.C. to the 6th century A.D. 

We are delighted to include an important Attic Red-Figured Kylix attributed to Makron as painter and signed by Hieron as potter, sold to benefit the Cleveland Museum of Art; a Cycladic Marble Reclining Female Figure formerly in the collection of the artist Wolfgang Paalen; and a stunning Roman Marble Togatus from the collection of Nina Griscom. Other highlights include a splendid Middle Elamite Variegated Jasper Cylinder Seal for King Humbanumena I, a spectacular Egyptian Indurated Limestone Head of a Man, and a charming Egyptian Mottled Limestone “Frog Vessel” from the Pre-Dynastic Period.

We welcome you to view by appointment in our Rockefeller Center galleries from 10 - 14 October. Please contact Client Service at +1 212 636 2180 or info@christies.com to set up an appointment.
