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. Curated items from our gallery collection is also available through our online shop.

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 sale.

 Apollo is a proud member of LAPADA: The Association of Art and Antiques Dealers.
