Seller: artemisgallerylive (37) 100%, Location: Louisville, Colorado, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 263848418474 LOT 31BSeller's Estimate: USD 900 - 1,350 Greece, possibly Seleucid, Hellenistic Period, ca. 3rd to 2nd century BCE. A bronze implement consisting of eight long blades cut from bronze sheet and mounted together, one above the other, using two circular caps pinned at the top. The circular caps have a domed center and one of them bears a repousse image of an anchor. The anchor closely resembles the personal device of Syrian Seleucid drachm coins and suggests that this object may have been associated with them. The purpose of the implement is unknown, but the overlapping blades can be shaken or plucked to create a noise that could have been used in a ritual. Comes with custom stand. Size: 5.25" W x 15.5" H (13.3 cm x 39.4 cm); height on stand: 16.7" (42.4 cm). The anchor symbol comes from the Seleucid Empire, one of the Hellenistic states founded following the division of the Macedonian empire after Alexander the Great's death. The empire was, at least for its elites and rulers, essentially Greek, and Greek customs and culture dominated it. Alongside the horned horse and the elephant, the anchor was a symbol of the Seleucid monarchy.
