In 1830, a French farmer accidentally unearthed a trove of silver objects dedicated to Mercury, the god most honored in the Roman province of Gaul (modern-day France). The glittering statues, jewelry & more visit us for the exhibition “#AncientLuxury & the Roman Silver Treasure from Berthouville,” only on view through Feb. 5.
