The discovery of Priam's Treasure made by Heinrich Schliemann on May 31, 1873, at the excavations of Troy became a sensation in archaeological society. Priam's Treasure named after ancient king Priam was in a silver two-handed vessel and included more than 10,000 items: a thousand gold beads, earrings of different shapes, rings, bracelets, two gold tiaras, and a massive gold bowl. Heinrich feared confiscation of the treasure and took it to Athens and later to Germany. At the end of World War Two, it was taken to the USSR. In 1996, Priam's Treasure was exhibited in the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow.
