AUCTION HISTORY – THE ONLY METHOD OF SELLING THAT IS FAIR FOR BOTH SELLERS & BUYERS
Auctions date back to the earliest recorded history as a means of commerce. The word “auction” is derived from the Latin augeō and Ancient Greek αὐξάνω which means “I increase” or “I augment”. During the Roman Empire, Roman soldiers would often auction the spoils of war.
The most famous of auctions in the history of this world is for the garments of Jesus Christ. Amazing how the prophecy of David in Psalm 22:18 was fulfilled as we read in Mark 15:24 His garments (τὰ ἱμάτια). This would be loose, flowing outer dress with the girdle. The tunic (χιτών) was a closefitting dress, worn underneath the ἱμάτιον. There were four soldiers employed for each crucifixion. St. Cyril refers to the clothes of criminals as the prerequisite of the executioners. The first-century Jewish historian Josephus stated in his Antiquities (History) of the Jews that the temple’s high priest had to wear a vestment colored blue. This clothing was not made by pieces of clothing sewn together, or even two large pieces. It was one long vestment that was parted along the breast and back. Unlike clothing made from pieces and thus easier to tear up, Jesus’ coat would have been harder to separate into pieces. Additionally, the act of trying to divide such a seamless coat would likely make any pieces frayed and useless. Jesus’ vesture, or seamless coat, because they would not rend it is the piece, they cast lots by dividing up the clothes and were sold at auction.

Negotiation – These costs are lowered as well with the auction method of selling. Even in Roman Law the bid was an oral act of sale and was liable for trial in a court of justice. This means that negotiation costs regarding contracts are much less than private treaty sale.
Pricing, Monitoring & Enforcement Costs – Since auctions bring about the sale with bidding the oral act of the sale eliminates the monitoring and enforcement costs.
The auction method is the best mechanism for the formation of price which lowers transaction costs for all parties.
From ancient history, Auctions have provided a fair playing ground for participants both buyers and sellers. The management of risk for both sellers and buyers is equally shared with the auction method.
Auctioneers in the Roman Empire were specialized because of the importance of the wine trade in Rome and Ostia. This is no different today where auctioneers specialize in different markets.
