Marcus Aurelius: Meditations(Unabridged) Edited by William Kaufman. DESCRIPTION: Softcover: 99 pages. Publisher: Dover Publications. Inc; 1997) ISBN: ... more048629823X. One of the world’s most famous and influential books. Meditations” by the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius(121-180 A.D. incorporates the stoic percepts he used to cope with his life as a warrior and administrator of an empire. Ascending to the imperial throne in 161 AD, Aurelius found his reign beset by natural disasters and war. In the wake of these challenges, he set down a series of private reflections, outlining a philosophy of commitment to virtue above pleasure and tranquility above happiness. Reflecting the emperor’s own noble and self-sacrificing code of conduct. This eloquent and moving work draws and enriches the tradition of Stoicism, which stressed the search for inner peace and ethical certainty in an apparently chaotic world. Serenity was to be achieved by emulating in one’s personal conduct the underlying orderliness and lawfulness of nature. And in the face of the inevitable pain, loss, and death; the suffering at the core of life, Aurelius counsels stoic detachment from the things that are beyond one’s control, and a focus on one’s own will and perception. Presented here in a specially modernized version of this classic George Long translation. This updated and revised edition is easily accessible to contemporary readers. It not only provides a fascinating glimpse into the mind and personality of a highly principled Roman of the second century, but also offers today’s readers a practical and inspirational guide to the challenges of everyday life. CONDITION: New. Never read. PLEASE SEE IMAGES BELOW FOR SAMPLE PAGES FROM INSIDE OF BOOK. PLEASE SEE PUBLISHER. PROFESSIONAL, AND READER REVIEWS BELOW. PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: Marcus Aurelius reigned from 161 AD to 180 AD. And was perhaps the only true philosopher-king in the history of the world.

The Ancient Celts by Barry Cunliffe. DESCRIPTION: Hardback with Dust Jacket: 324 pages. Publisher: Oxford University Press; 1997) ISBN: 0198150105. Published at $55.00] For two and a half thousand years the Celts have continued to fascinate those who have come into contact with them. Yet their origins have remained a mystery and even today are the subject of heated debate among historians and archaeologists. In this erudite and engaging illustrated history, Professor Cunliffe explores the archaeological reality of these bold warriors and skilled craftsmen of barbarian Europe who inspired fear in the Greeks and Romans. He investigates the texts of the classical writers and contrasts their view of the Celts with current archaeological findings. Tracing the emergence of chiefdoms and the fifth-to third-century migrations as far as Bosnia and ... morethe Czech Republic and into Turkey. He assesses the disparity between the traditional and contemporary information on the Celts. Other aspects of Celtic identity, such as the cultural diversity of the tribes, their social and religious systems, their art, language and law, are also examined. From the picture that emerges, Professor Cunliffe is able to distinguish between the original Celts and tribes which were subjected to'Celtization' thus giving us a new insight into the true identity of this ancient people.

2 Antique 19thC ¾ct Tourmaline Ancient Gem of Rainbows
Two Exquisite. Antique, Nineteenth Century Briolette Cut Hand Faceted Genuine Natural Siberian Three-Quarter Carat Green“Chrome” Tourmaline Semi-Precious Gemstones. Mounted into contemporary high quality 14kt French hooks. CLASSIFICATION: Briolette Cut Green Siberian Tourmaline. ORIGIN: Ural Mountains of Russia. 19th Century. SIZE: Length: 6mm. Diameter: 5mm. WEIGHT: 1.74 carats(the pair) NOTES: Other setting styles(euro clicks. Lever backs, kidney wires, ball/stud dangles) are available upon request, both in 14kt solid gold and in 14kt gold fill. DETAIL: In ancient mythology. Tourmaline was found in all colors because it traveled along a rainbow and gathered all the rainbow's colors. In fact the name tourmaline comes from the Dutch traders who purchased gemstones from the Celanese(i.e. Ceylon or Sri Lanka) The word"turmali, meant"mixed" ... moreand the bright rainbow collections of gemstone varieties which the Dutch purchased were called"turmali" parcels. Here are two exquisitely colored, antique hand faceted green(chrome) tourmaline briolette cut semi-precious gemstones from the Ural Mountains of Russia. Though the country best known for green tourmaline is Tanzania(and to some extent, Brazil) the Ural Mountains of Russia have been producing green chrome tourmaline for centuries. In fact, many of the Russian crown jewels are tourmaline. In the Victorian Age tourmaline was enormously popular not only in Russia, but throughout 18th and 19th century Europe. These particular gemstones were hand cut and faceted into somewhat coarse briolettes, an old fashioned cut reflecting their heritage. Land of the fabled jewelry of the Czars, Russia was renowned for its production of elaborate(and costly) jewelry throughout Victorian Europe. Chrome tourmaline is rather uncommon, probably the rarest of the ordinary varieties of tourmaline. There is substantially more demand than supply. So thus oftentimes can be quite costly. It is called“Chrome” Tourmaline because it is traces of chromium which gives the ge
21ct Handcrafted Ametrine Gem of Spanish Conquistador Ancient Persia Camel Route
HUGE Twenty-One and One-Half Carat Russian Handcrafted Checkerboard Faceted Marquise Cut Genuine Natural Ametrine Semi-Precious Gemstone. CLASSIFICATION: Handcrafted Marquise Cut Checkerboard Faceted Ametrine. GEMSTONE ORIGIN: Bolivia’s Anahi Mine. Handcrafted in or near Yekaterinburg(Siberia) Russia. SIZE: Length: 27 1/2mm. Width: 15mm. Depth: 10 3/4mm. All measurements approximate. WEIGHT: 21.57 carats. NOTES: Upon request we can set your gemstones as a ring. Pendant, or as earrings(click for more information) DETAIL: Though Ametrine was known in the ancient world(the ancient source for ametrine was likely India via camel caravan through Persia) It first became famous in the modern world in the seventeenth century when a Spanish conquistador received it as a dowry when he married a South American Indian princess. Ametrine was subsequently ... moreintroduced to Europe through the conquistador's gifts to the Spanish queen. You can think of Ametrine as a gemstone quality quartz crystal which when growing up could not decide whether it wanted to be an Amethyst or a Citrine, and so developed a“split personality” This is a very large, very clean, handcrafted checkerboard faceted marquise cut ametrine semi-precious gemstone from the Anahi Mine in Bolivia. Exported to Russia for use in indigenous jewelry, the gemstone was hand crafted and faceted by a Russian artisan, part of a centuries-long heritage renown for the production of the elaborate gemstones and jewelry of the Czars of Medieval, Renaissance, and Victorian Russia. Ametrine is actually very rare in nature, having both the manganese traces which produce amethyst’s purple, as well as the iron traces which produce citrine’s yellow. The crystals must then be exposed to a variable source of heat, such as might be the case when a crystal partly encased in rock is exposed on one surface to sun shine. Slowly a portion of the gemstone will change color from amethyst’s purple to citrine’s yellow. This occurs rather rarely in nature. It seems that the ancient Mediter

Each volume undertakes to describe the major events that happened in one specific time period in the development of mankind’s civilization(s) The volumes are richly illustrated. And designed as an introduction to the time frame covered. Especially compelling are the artists interpretations or recreations of what various ancient civilizations would have looked like– their architecture, homes, monuments, cities, daily life, jewelry, food, family life, dwellings, occupations, etc. As just one instance, the ruins of Babylon and Ur, Athens and Rome hint at the incredible richness of those fabled cities.

"Beyond Stonehenge" Ancient Astronomy Wisdom Science Nazca Machu Picchu Karnak
Beyond Stonehenge by Gerald S. Hawkins. DESCRIPTION: Hardback with Dust Jacket: 319 pages. Publisher: Harper& Row. Publishers; 1973) Gerald Hawkins. Author of“Stonehenge Decoded” and“Splendor in the Sky” here explores many intriguing facets of the wisdom of ancient man. First he tells about the astro-archaeological work done at Stonehenge itself, that eighth wonder of the ancient world. Stonehenge is an architectural gem, awesome, haunting, strangely beautiful. On the day of a summer solstice, his group took pictures of the rising sun over the heel stone. Hawkins considers just what it is that makes a civilization. Again he goes to make a study of enormous ancient drawings in the Peruvian desert, those vast linear Nazca lines which can be appreciated only from the air. Yet their makers could not have seen them from the air. How and why ... morewere they made? Hawkins and his associates made measurements and calculations. But came to the conclusion that they are not oriented toward sun, moon, or stars. Their mystery remains unsolved; gigantic lizard, spider, flower, monkey. The author explores Machu Picchu and its temple. He reviews Heyerdahl’s theory of Kon-Tiki and the passage to the Pacific islands from the west coast of South America. Hawkins then explores the activities of the American Indian mound builders. Some of those works are oriented toward the sun. He looks at Mayan ruins in Central America. Hawkins makes astro-surveys of the temples of the Nile. The Great Temple of Karnak, the Temple of Amon-Ra, where the pharaoh made his sun observations, and other temples. Hawkins’ assumption is that anything which shows today as clearly astronomical was known in antiquity to the builders. He offers perceptive speculations on how much longer our civilization will continue, and digs into many legends and myths concerned with the ancient civilizations which still have reference in the modern world. Illustrated with 60 photographs and 49 line drawings. CONDITION: Pages are clean. Crisp, unmarked(except for owner's nam

Celts occupied land in modern day Eastern Europe, Greece, Spain, Northern Italy, Western Europe, England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The Celtic people have mystified anthropologists and historians for generations. They were a non literate culture whose history and literature was preserved through oral tradition. The only written records of their civilization are the texts left by classical authors, the first of which appear circa 500 BCE. These accounts, inaccurate as they may be, are important in that they demonstrate that the Celts came into cultural contact, and sometimes competition, with the Greeks as well as the Romans.

A nice quality gemstone in its times, it is more or less transparent but by no means flawless.

The Roman author Pliny the Elder described the Celtic ritual gathering of mistletoe which was found growing on an oak tree. A Druid.

Axes such as this would have been used to clear the forests of Early Europe ... morefor human habitation. They could also be used in battle and for religious purposes. As dedications.

Ancient European Bronze Celtic Horse - Bull toggle 50 B.C.
A fascinating ancient Celtic bronze toggle. Dating to approximately 50 B.C. A most unusual toggle. With the top end fashioned into a bull's head with curled horns, the eyes and brow incised. The lower end is modeled as a horse head, rendered in a rather reduced and abstract way, yet also capturing accurately the form of the creature. The central section of the toggle becomes the neck of the horse with the mane incised at the top. A horizontal perforation midway through. A beautiful example of imaginative Celtic art at its best. Celtic La Tene art is greatly admired for its free organic feel. Which lies in contrast to classical art that attempts to depict things in a naturalistic manner. Length: 36mm. Height of piece including mount: 62mm. Condition: Unrestored. Mounted on a beautiful bronze stand.

Ancient European Bronze Age Looped Winged Flanged Axe
A beautiful European copper alloy winged. Flanged and looped axe, dating to approximately 1400 B.C. The patination on this large Axe is exquisite- a brilliant green colour. The Axe is of usual Bronze Age form. With curved blade edge and large wing like flanges. In antiquity, a wooden pole would have inserted under the winged flanges and would have been held in place by a thick rope, tied through the loop. The piece was originally cast from a two-part mold. And hammered into shape- hammer marks are still visible on the body due to the exceptional preservation of the surface. Axes such as this would have been used to clear the forests of Early Europe for human habitation. They could also be used in battle and for religious purposes. As dedications. Indeed, these axes are often found in hoards throughout central Europe, where they are believed ... moreto have served a votive function. Length: 6 inches; Condition: Exceptional condition.

Celtic Gaul Ancient Forgery Roman Denarius Emperor Severus Money Goddess Moneta
A Celtic Forgery from Gaul of the Silver Roman Denarius of Emperor Septimius Severus with a Reverse Theme Depicting the Roman Goddess of the Roman Mint“Moneta” 194 A.D. OBVERSE INSCRIPTION: IMP CAE L SEPT SEV PERT AVG COS II. OBVERSE DEPICTION: The head of Septimius Severus. Right, laureate crown(laurel wreath) REVERSE INSCRIPTION: MONET AVG. REVERSE DEPICTION: The Goddess Moneta. Enrobed, standing left, holding balance(weight) scales and cornucopiae. ATTRIBUTION: An ancient forgery probably struck by Celtic Gauls after the year 200 A.D. the original issue was struck in 194 A.D. The Latin is badly butchered and the depictions of Emperor Septimius Severus and of Moneta are both a bit off. But clearly recognizable. Ancient no doubt.but a forgery(forged money was common in ancient Rome is at is not too uncommon in our contemporary world) SIZE/MEASUREMENTS: ... moreDiameter: 16 x 15 1/2 millimeters. Weight: 2.09 grams. NOTE: Coin is mounted free of charge into your choice of pendant settings(shown in sterling silver pendant) And includes a sterling silver chain in your choice of 16" 18" or 20" length, details below or click) For a more authentic touch. We also have available handcrafted Greek black leather cords. We can reverse coin in mounting if you prefer opposite side showing front. DETAIL: This is a very handsome silver denarius which is an ancient forgery. Most likely struck in Gaul. It is a crude copy of a denarius which was originally struck in 194 A.D. in Emesa, Syria, a city very significant in the personal history of the Emperor Septimius Severus, who was depicted on the front of both the original coin as well as the forgery. It is in relatively good condition, a crude imitation of course, with only part legends(misspelled of course) and the depiction on the reverse of the Goddess Moneta also crude. But despite all of this, the coin is quite significant historically, one could argue even more significant than one of the original, legitimately struck specimens, and far, far more rare. Th
