Teotihuacan, Mexico. 200 - 800 AD. Pre-Aztec Teotihuanaca Artifacts for Sale
Teotihuacan was called the "City of the Gods" - the sacred Precolumbian metropolis outside Mexico City. It was known by later cultures such as the Mayans and Aztecs as the City of the Gods - the place of their ancestors which was revered for centuries after its decline.

Among the below offerings are items from the private collection of Professor Hasso Von Winning (1914 - 2001), the German Archaeologist responsible for the Discovery of much of the ancient city of Teotihuacan. Upon his death, his private collection went to auction. Now available are some of his prized figurines.
