Our Story

Aptly named after the god of light, art & knowledge, Apollo brings you the ancient past through antiquities and numismatics.

Founded by Dr. Ivan Bonchev in 2010, Apollo encompasses all aspects of collecting and appreciating ancient art, antiquities and coins. Our specialities include: Ancient Roman, Greek, Asian, Egyptian, Medieval, Viking and Neolithic.

Our main gallery, based in Bloomsbury, Central London, offers an expertly curated selection of pieces from throughout history. Here we welcome visitors from all over the world to view and learn about our work in person and through upcoming special events and lectures. Our complete gallery collection is also available 

In a similar spirit, our auction house regularly offers new catalogs to a large international audience of collectors. Every piece we deal undergoes vetting from an expert panel of consultants, and many are also scientifically tested. You can view our upcoming auctions, and learn how to bid here.

Previously known as Pax Romana, in 10 short years we have grown considerably. With a 20,000 strong client database we are internationally recognised, with clients from over 70 countries. We also assist in the maintenance of collections for clients old and new, and we welcome the consignment of antiquities for both our gallery and auctions.
