Scythian gold returned to Kiev

But works from Crimean museum remain in Amsterdam pending judge’s ruling

Nineteen pieces of Scythian gold, including a fourth-century BC ceremonial helmet, have been returned by the Allard Pierson Museum in Amsterdam to the Museum of Historical Treasures of Ukraine. They went on public display in Kiev on Tuesday.

The fate of another 565 items originally lent by four museums in Crimea for the same exhibition, “The Crimea: Gold and Secrets of the Black Sea”, remains in question since Russia annexed the region in March, two months before the show was originally scheduled to end.
