In November we published an article about a mysterious theft: most pieces of the important treasure find with gold coins from the 5th century, which had been found by archaeologists in 2004 on the territory of the church San Mamiliano in Sovana, a city in southern Tuscany, had disappeared. There was no trace of the thieves and the loot.

Now, lists with details and photos of the objects were published to help find the stolen coins. The remaining pieces are highlighted in yellow; all other items were stolen.
