Selections from our Roman Antiquities Gallery
The Roman Period generally dates from around 200 BC to 476 AD, and is divided into the Republican era and the Imperial era which begins in 27 BC when Octavian (the great-nephew of Julius Caesar) receives the title "Augustus." Roman artifacts appearing on the market today have a wide variety of geographic provenances, from Western Russia to Northern Africa to Great Britain and Scotland to Northern Europe.
The Romans were also great admirers of Greek culture and art. This admiration created a vigorous collectors market among the Roman aristocracy, and also had a significant and sustained influence upon Roman art and crafts.
