R-1069

Roman Bronze Athlete Figure circa 1st 4th century AD. Here we have a stunning rare bronze figure of an athlete, possibly a swimmer or diver. This item may well have been of Romano Greek origin. The figure is of good size and shows nice facial and hair detail. The hands are deliberately disproportionate to the head and body, again indicating that of a swimmer. The hole in the back of the figure points to the possibility of it being used to display a flame or to burn incense. Underneath the body of the figure is a bronze mount with a fixing whole where it could have been attached to a staff for either ceremonial or ritual purposes. A fabulous piece of Roman history. The figure is mounted on an acrylic stand for display purposes. 130mm x 50mm.

R-1070

Roman Bronze Statue of Mars circa 1st 2nd century AD. An interesting small bronze statue of the Roman god of war, Mars. This item was found on private farm land in Northumberland UK near the area of Hadrian's Wall. The figure is shown naked but with full head dress. The surface is worn and slightly pitted with age but still shows good detail. The hands and feet have been broken off in antiquity most likely as a votive offering to the gods, in this case Mars god of war is closely associated with the Roman army. A rare opportunity to own a piece of Roman military history with a Hadrian's Wall connection. Comes with small wooden display stand. 80mm x 40mm.
