Priced at £150,000
Founded in 2014 by the Swiss entrepreneur and collector Lorne Thyssen-Bornemisza, London’s Kallos Gallery specialises in Greek antiquities and romantically titled exhibitions. The latest show, which coincided with London Art Week and continues to the end of July, focuses on a humble but exquisite group of 12 gold coins dating from 561BC to 135BC. The star exhibit is this gold stater of Lampsakos (394-350BC), one of only two known examples. It bears a three-quarter portrait of Athena, the goddess of wisdom and war, in bold relief on one side, and Pegasus, the winged horse she is said to have tamed, on the other.
