An exhibition of a valuable Dacian treasure consisting of two golden bracelets and over 300 gold and silver coins will be held between June 21-28 in Sala Unirii in Alba Iulia with free access to the public, according to Agerpres.

The artifacts come from the Sarmizegetusa Regia site and were recovered by the Romanian state after being sold on the international Black Market by archaeological poachers.

This is will not the first time the authorities in Alba Iulia chose to exhibit Dacian bracelets, as in the past all 13 bracelets that are currently in the possession of the Romanian state were presented to the public at the Alba Iulia museum (Muzeul National al Unirii).

The two golden bracelets and the coins made of Koson and Lysimachos gold and silver will also serve as evidence in a trial held in Deva.

Augustin Lazar, the current Romanian general attorney, declared at the beginning of 2015 there are signs which show the existence of 11 more bracelets that are part of the same Dacian treasure. The missing bracelets are being tracked by the Interpol and they are believed to be spread across Europe, USA and Australia.
