Seuso Treasure

Budapest, Magyar Nemzeti Múzeum, 27 June 2018 - 31 January 2019
The Seuso treasure, the most significant silver find from the period of the later Roman Empire is exhibited in the Hungarian National Museum. The collection of 14 silver pieces of tableware and the copper cauldron used for hiding them represent the most valuable collectıon of its kind.
The silver tableware strongly reflects the personality and social rank of its owner. His name, Seuso is captioned on the central platter of the collectıon. Not only his name can be known by the inscriptıons but also that his villa and the surrounding fields were located near Lake Pelso, today named Balaton, the biggest lake in Central Europe. The scenes on the pieces of the collection depict storıes of love and hunting from the ancient Greek mythology that could only have been understood by the elite of the society of that time. The cosmetic casket, belonging to the owner’s wife, completes the splendour of the whole collection by comparing the beauty of the wife to that of Aphrodite.
