This is a list of all of the Antiquities that are found in the Gold Coast.

ON-icon-furniture-Gold Coast Map.png Name Antique Map of the Gold Coast Value N/A
Reginus Buca
I think it's fairly obvious that this is a depiction of the Gold Coast. A beautifully rendered one at that.
Amalien
It's interesting to think about maps drawn before and after the construction of Varen's Wall. Each tell quite a different story about the land and it's people!
Verita Numida
I'd be curious to see a map of this area from the First Era, if such a thing could ever be found. All that remains of the great Ayleid settlements is broken marble and subterranean dangers. A fitting end for such a terrible people.

ON-icon-stolen-Ring.png Name Ornate Nose Ring Value 250
Reginus Buca
Here's a pretty thing. This resembles the rings one might find in the nose of an unruly bull. Far more ornate, though. Much larger, too. This is an odd discovery. The rocky terrain around Kvatch is better suited for goats than cattle.
Verita Numida
Let's not sidestep the obvious, Reginus. This clearly hung from the snout of an ancient minotaur. It displays a level of craftsmanship we don't typically see in Minotaur attire, though. And what are these etchings. Clasped hands?
Amalien
Not clasped, Verita. The hands seem to be struggling over the same object--trying to steal it from one another. Is it the Amulet of Kings? Might this imply some discontent about Imperial governance? Or even stand as a call to rebellion?

ON-icon-stolen-War Toy.png Name Water-worn Anvil Bust Value 1,000
Verita Numida
According to Imperial histories, Anvil enjoyed a rich statuary tradition in the early years of the First Empire--before the Alessian Order made such artistic expression more difficult. This face appears very eroded, though.
Amalien
Look at the position of the neck. It seems to be looking up, to me. Fishermen in Anvil swear that broken statues rest at the bottom of the pond under the famous mermaid. Could something or someone be looking up at her? I'd check, but I can't swim!
Reginus Buca
We don't have nearly enough evidence to be able to associate this disembodied head with the Mermaid of Anvil. I'll grant you, the stone appears similar in composition, but the face looks like statues of regency council lords in nearby Kvatch to me.

ON-icon-quest-Book 01.png Name Book of Dark Rites Value 5,000
Gabrielle Benele
We've stumbled upon something truly dangerous here. The cover should serve as your first clue; black leather that seems to shiver into goosebumps at the slightest touch. And the contents are no better. Page after blood-stained page depicting murders of every variety. What I find most disturbing is this "Rite of Penance." It's not like the Black Sacrament. The sigils and physical components feel consistent with a summoning ritual. But what could an assassin summon that's worse than himself?

ON-icon-furniture-Golden Idol of Morihaus.png Name Golden Idol of Morihaus Value N/A
Ugron gro-Thumog
Gilded, Imperial bust depicting a winged bull? It's got to be Morihaus, the bull-faced lover of Alessia. The questions with Morihaus is always, "how literal is too literal?" and "Is this literal enough?" I'm sure Reginus and Amalien have opinions ….
Reginus Buca
The sculptor clearly did not intend for the viewer to take this as a literal depiction. The vacant, bovine affect on the subject's face reveals no heroic personality, and the wings are far too small. This is a symbolic representation of the subject.
Amalien
Obviously, the bust is symbolic. But that does nothing to prove Morihaus looked like you, Reginus! Surely, the existence of minotaurs is proof enough that chimeric creatures exist. A demigod exhibiting those traits is well within the realm of possibility!

ON-icon-furniture-Meridian Sconce.png Name Meridian Sconce Value N/A
Verita Numida
To the untrained eye, this sconce might appear to portray Kynareth, but it depicts nothing of the sort. This is a votive chandelier to the Daedric Prince, Meridia, guaranteed. Hardly the sort of thing you'd want lighting your dining room table.
Gabrielle Benele
As Daedric Princes go, she's not all that bad. What interests me is the craftsmanship. Someone built a shrine to her in Skyrim, granted. But this hardly seems Nord-inspired. Those curled arms feel Nibenese to me. Odd to find it in Colovia.
Ugron gro-Thumog
If there's a difference between Nibenese and Colovians, you would barely notice. In any case, I'd date this back to 1E 1900's. Some Daedra-worshiper probably took it to the coast to escape the Alessian Order's inquisitors. Guess it didn't work out.
