"We're featuring an incredible selection of antiquities from a wide variety of cultures in our first major online auction of the new year," said Gabriel Vandervort, the owner of Ancient Resource Auctions, adding, "Bidders are bound to get some wonderful pieces at great prices."

With a pre-sale estimate of $7,000-$10,000, the large Byzantine double-spouted bronze lamp is a strong candidate for top lot of the auction. The 9 ¾ inch tall lamp, on a flared pedestal foot, is lovely, with an elegant rounded body and well-preserved brown patinated surfaces with green deposits. Lamps with similar bodies and spout designs currently reside in the British Museum.

The full figure marble anthropic cohoba stand was an item used in hallucinogenic ceremonies.

A bowl of cohoba would be placed on the effigy's head and shared among participants. The stands were rarely made from stone, like this gorgeous 12 ½ inch tall example. The figure's head is turned backward – commonly seen in Taino Art (est. $6,000-$8,000).
