Founded in 1996, our company began as a mail order business dealing in philately as well as ancient numismatics. Today, we are focusing primarily on ancient numismatics, with an emphasis on Greek, Roman and Byzantine coins. The company is run by Dr. Constantin A. Marinescu, a specialist in ancient art and coinage. Dr. Marinescu received his Ph.D. in art history from Columbia University in 1996. His dissertation, entitled Making and Spending Money Along the Bosporus: The Lysimachi Coinages Minted by Byzantium and Chalcedon, is currently being revised and due to be published shortly. Dr. Marinescu has worked in the ancient art market as a consultant for over 25 years and would be delighted to assist you with all of your collecting interests.
