Entire Seuso treasure on display

An exhibition of the entire Seuso treasure trove has opened at the Szent István Király Museum in Székesfehérvár, the first stop of a travelling exhibition to the Hungarian countryside.

Under a cabinet decision, the exhibition will also be on show in Kaposvár, Kecskemét, Miskolc, Nyíregyháza and Zalaegerszeg. The Székesfehérvár exhibition is open through November 19.

The Seuso treasure is the most significant gold and silversmith collection of artefacts from the late Roman period found in Hungary. Following its discovery in the 1970’s, the treasures left the country illegally.

The Hungarian government retrieved the treasures in two steps; the first seven pieces in 2014 and the second set of seven pieces this summer. The treasures were on view in Parliament until end-August.
