Roman Glass Jar http://www.antiques.com/classified/1124827/Antique-Roman-glass-jar Roman glass jar 3rd century a.D size: this jar has an attractive metallic sheen or iridescence, but it was not always like that. When it was first made it was clear. Over the years, water and atmospheric pollution have created many thin layers of glass on the outside. As light penetrates the surface and is reflected from each layer it is split into its component colours to give a rainbow effect. Because the colours come from light, and not added pigment, the effect changes as the viewing angle is altered.

Iron Age Terracotta Juglet http://www.antiques.com/classified/1124978/Antique-Iron-Age-Terracotta-Juglet- Created during the era of the kings david and solomon, this simple yet charming vessel exudes an energy of the ages, glowing from within its surface, richly patinated by the fingerprints of history. Such a vessel would have been a necessity in the ancient world to contain and transport precious oils and unguents. Our imagination is stimulated as we try to picture whose hands might have held this vessel almost three millennia ago. It is plausible that such a jug was used by samuel to symbolically anoint saul as the king of israel. Whatever the secrets of its past, we are aware that it was crafted by ancient hands, held and used by people who lived in a time of religious and political revolution. Although its original contents have long disappeared, the energy of those vanished lives is still contained within this vessel. This jug was once a vital, indispensable part of everyday life in the ancient world. Today, it is even more valuable to our modern lives, not as a container, but as a symbol of the past. This jug holds history inside, it reminds us of the lives, the joys and struggles, the triumphs and defeats, of those who came before us.

Large Roman Bronze Bull C.100 Ad. http://www.antiques.com/classified/1125079/Antique-Large-Roman-Bronze-Bull-C-100-AD-- Large roman bronze bull c.100 ad. the bull symbolizes fighting ability and male fertility while the symbol of the bull stands for valor and magnanimity ever since the prehistoric times. the bull symbol represents heaven in babylonia and syria with the god of storm riding on its back. In egypt it is a symbol of royalty and is sacrificed in religious rituals for millennia, associated with the sun, fire, resurrection, earth, water, night and even death. Since its blood is used in sacrifices, it is associated with the death of winter and the return of spring; they are emblems of death, tyranny, ferocity, brutality, stubbornness, lust, and the devil. The jumping of man over bulls shows the mans superiority over animals as is seen in ancient crete but on the contrary leading a bull to the arena sometimes symbolizes when christ was led to the cross. since the bull has different colors, black bulls were associated with death as in egypt where god osiris' body was borne on the back of a black bull while in indonesia and india bodies of princes were cremated in coffins baring shapes of bulls. The wild nature of the bulls, its roar, the windy breath and the sound of his hooves were associated to tempests, thunder, wind and ocean respectively. This made them be seen as sea gods like poseidon, adad, thor, and ishkur who were depicted as riding bulls. bull symbolizes strength and fertility in hinduism. The cow here represents a fruitful earth while the bull is the fertile sky. The rig-veda associated the bull to a heavenly creature that fertilized the earth with his sperm. This bull was known as bull rudra. They called their god agni mighty bull while the bull-god vrishabha was known to be responsible for the spinning of the cosmic wheel. The nandi bull symbolizes sexual energy when ridden by shiva but this energy is transformed at times to spiritual energy. In india shiva's white bull stands for cosmic order, strength and justice. In some cultures the violent earthquakes are caused since celestial bull is believed to carry the world upon its horns and at times gets rowdy.

Alexander The Great Set In A K14 Gold Pendant. http://www.antiques.com/classified/1125089/Antique-Alexander-The-Great-set-in-a-K14-gold-pendant- Silver tetradrachm the ancient greeks are renowned for their works of art, and coins of the legendary king, alexander âthe greatâ, we can see some of the finest examples ever minted. The most abundant portraits of alexander coinage portray him as the great hero, herakles, who is better known by the name âherculesâ, as he was called by the romans. He was important to alexanderâs legacy of being a direct descendant from the gods. You can see that he wears the skin of a lion draped over his head. In greek mythology, hercules had to prove his god status by accomplishing 12 labors - twelve humanly impossible tasks that only a god could accomplish. The first was to kill the nemean lion, a beast with skin so thick, it could not be penetrated by dagger, sword, or arrow. hercules, in a testament to his great strength and ingenuity, strangles the lion with his bare hands, finally defeating it with his weapon of choice, a club torn from a nearby oak tree. From this point on, hercules wears the skin of the nemean lion as his trophy, and throughout history- a man wearing the skin of a lion and holding a club: indicates hercules, the son of zeus. On the reverse of the coin we see zeus, the king of the greek gods, seated on a throne, with a scepter and an eagle in his outstretched hand. These symbols of supreme authority symbolize alexanderâs status as leader over his vast empire.

The Biblical Widows Mite http://www.antiques.com/classified/1125091/Antique-The-Biblical-Widows-Mite K14 gold pendant and jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites... And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, verily i say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: for all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all she had." -mark 12:41-44 there are very few stories from the bible are as touching as this one, which tells us that the true nature of generosity is not how much you can give in relation to others, but how much you can give in relation to yourself. The two pennies that the poor widow contributed were more meaningful to jesus than the amounts of silver that the wealthy merchants brought forth. Rather than a portion of the excess, the widow did cast all she had to give. This tiny bronze coin (a mite) was struck in judaea from 103 to 76 bc, and shows a star on one side and an anchor on the other. It is representative of what would have been used as small "pocket change" in jerusalem at the time this poor widow made her memorable donation.
