Bonhams Antiquities auctions offer a wide variety of objects from the ancient Mediterranean world - including Greece, Rome, Egypt and the Near East - from the third millennium B.C. to the 10th century A.D. We hold two auctions a year in London as part of Bonhams The Classics sales, with our July auction falling in the same period as London Art Week and Masterpiece Art Fair.
