About Us



ArtAncient specialises in ancient art, numismatics and natural history.

Founded by Costas Paraskevaides in 2008, ArtAncient started as an online gallery and has grown to deal in high quality works of art, having participated in international art fairs and been elected to trade associations. The gallery opened a London-based showroom in 2016.
