MILITARIA - ANCIENT GREEK WEAPONS AND ARMOR

GREEK HOPLITE WARRIORS

9655. RARE CORINTHIAN ARYBALLOS WITH HOPLITE WARRIORS, c. 6th century BC. The small perfume vessel of spherical form with a wide rim to distribute the scent of the perfume, the body decorated with a procession of four Greek hoplite warriors r. bearing spears and large shields. 2.2 x 2.25 inches. Couple of tiny flakes patched on the bottom not interfering with design. Very rare and desirable processional scene with hoplites. Classic early Greek art!

$2500.



7991. BEAUTIFUL AND RARE HELLENISTIC/EARLY ROMAN BALLISTA BOLT, 3rd-1st century BC. The bronze ballista bolt of large arrowhead form with tenon on trailing end. The Roman ballista was a large stationary crossbow that was mechanically wound up and shot bolts with tremendous force. It was the Roman equivalent of a small artillery piece. Very rare and in excellent condition. 2.9 inches. Dr Mike Bishop, co-author of 'Roman Military Equipment', suggests that this may be a rarer Hellenistic ballista bolt. The asymmetrical grove acted as a kind of 'rifling' which caused the bolt to rotate and by this means stabilized its flight.

ANCIENT GREEK MARBLE SCULPTURE, STELE & ALABASTRA

BEAUTIFUL LARGE CLASSICAL GREEK SCULPTURAL FRIEZE

9663. A GREEK MARBLE FRIEZE WITH GARLANDED BULLS, late 4th - early 3rd century BC. The frieze with three deeply carved bull heads with connecting garlands draped across them, a rosette and shield medallion above the hanging loops of the garlands. 14 x 44 x 5 inches. In three closely fitting sections which stand on their own together very nicely. A beautifully symmetrical and very decorative and impressive frieze carved of the finest pure white very fine grained marble with a rich honey patina. A very rare large original Classical Greek sculpture.

In ancient Greece bulls were a symbol of fertility and agricultural prosperity. They were led garlanded in seasonal festivals to ensure and celebrate good harvests and civic prosperity. The garlanded bull motif is found fairly frequently in classical Greek art, though usually on a much smaller scale in coins and small ceramics.

Height is 8.5 inches. Intact with no repair or restoration. Fired from brown clay with considerable original white pigment remaining.

The ceramic figures produced by artists in Tanagra Boeotia in the mid 4th century BC are generally considered to be the finest ceramic figures produced by the ancient Greeks. They are most often figures of stylishly dressed young ladies but occasionally include figures of young men as well as in this example.

Provenance: Collected in the early 1900's in Greece by the grandmother of the current elderly owner. Shown to the Victoria and Albert museum in 1987 which confirmed its authenticity.

$6500.



A STYLISH YOUNG LADY

11167. TANAGRA GREEK FIGURE OF A LADY. Greece, Boeotia, c. 300-250 BC. Ceramic figure of a young lady standing with her weight on her left leg, wearing a chiton and himation arranged to leave her breasts and shoulders exposed, her right hand supporting herself on a pedestal, her left hand likely originally holding a fan but now broken at the elbow. Her hair centrally parted and drawn into a knot at the back. Finely modeled from brown clay with traces of original white pigment. Professional museum quality repair from several large shards but all original except one corner of back base. 6.5 inches in height.

'Tanagras' are named after the site in Boeotia, central Greece, where thousands of similar figures were unearthed in the early 1870s. Figures of men, children and comic actors were also found at Tanagra, but standing female figures are the most numerous. The chief appeal of Tanagra figures lies in their exceptional artistic quality usually considered to be the finest of all Greek figurines. The ladies are normally depicted in casual poses and their clothes, which usually consist of a thinner undergarment, the chiton, worn beneath a thicker cloak or himation, are typically pulled and twisted in pleasing patterns which emphasize the form of the figure beneath. Most Tanagra figures are mould made and sometimes have a vent cut in the back to ensure even distribution of heat in the firing. After firing, the figure was coated in a white slip, often a solution of chalk or white clay, and then colors were added on top. The artists who produced these figures were known as coroplasts, literally 'modelers of girls'.

Provenance: Collected in the early 1900's in Greece by the grandmother of the current elderly owner. Shown to the Victoria and Albert museum in 1987 which confirmed its authenticity.

$3500.

$3500.



7311. GREEK TERRA COTTA HEAD OF A GROTESQUE OR ELDERLY MAN, c. 3rd-1st century BC. With furrowed brow and drawn face. 1.7 inches. In the Hellenistic period a genre of portraying grotesques and caricatures was popular thus this excellent realistic depiction in fine Hellenistic style.

WITH ORIGINAL PIGMENT

7591. CANOSAN GREEK POLYCHROME LADY, Greek colonies in Southern Italy, 3rd-2nd Century BC. Beautifully modeled ceramic figure of a young lady of style. She stands in contrapposto, with most of her weight on the right foot, the left leg bent. Her left hand rests on her hip, her right arm falls gracefully along her side. She wears a thin pink chiton (inner undergarment) belted at the waist with the loose folds hanging to the tops of her thighs. Over this she wears a blue outer himation open in the front, and a blue head covering. Her lips and earrings are painted red, her face and hands white, and her hair done in brown. Height is 18.3 cm. (7.2 inches). Condition: Choice and intact in an exceptional state of preservation with no repair or restoration or repainting.

Canosan refers to one of the distinctive artistic styles of the Greek colonies of Southern Italy. Canosan pottery and figurines are characterized by the use of delicate pastel painted colors rather than glazes. Due to the delicacy of such paints one rarely finds a piece where more than traces of the colors remain. The current piece is highly exceptional in that nearly all of the original paint remains beautifully intact. An important piece worthy of the finest collection.

Provenance: A private North Eastern collection, acquired at auction at Harmer Rooke Galleries October, 1996.

$12,000.

THE FACE OF MAUSOLUS

7215. GREEK INTAGLIO SEAL IMPRESSION WITH THE FACE OF MAUSOLUS, c. 4th century BC. Fired clay stamped with the very high profile facing head of what appears to be the Hellenistic king Mausolus. Such clay intaglios were likely used as seals for papyrus scrolls. Mausolus, the ruler of Halicarnassus, was the builder of the eponymous Mausoleum. 17mm.

Provenance: From the estate of a prominent Egyptologist active in the early part of the 20th century. Brought to the US with the family in 1954.

$850.
