  • more about Antinoos

    Born in Bithynia in AD110, Antinoos, or Antinous, lover of the Emperor Hadrian, drowned in the Nile at the age of twenty, in mysterious circumstances. He was deified by Hadrian, who founded the city Antinopolis in his memory. Images of the beautiful youth abound on coinage and in portraiture from the 2nd century AD.

  • about the bronze collection

    The bronze pieces are cast in Greece using the traditional lost wax method. As nothing is mass-produced, there will inevitably be slight variations in texture, patina, and colour. No two pieces are ever the same. If mounted on a marble base, it will be a black or very dark grey base. There may be a variation of some millimetres in the dimensions of the base from time to time.

    It's All Greek is proud to have been working with the Semitekolo family foundry since 1999. It has been a privilege to handle these gorgeous pieces and to sell them to customers all over the world.
