This 24-carat-gold stickpin is one of the most exquisitely wrought pieces of jewelry from Troy. The pin features an elaborately filigreed gold center plate, a little over an inch long, with six miniature two-handled drinking vessels attached to its upper edge. Although Schliemann eventually attributed the pin to the period of Priam’s Treasure, his own 1878 report indicates that it came from a different level of excavation and was found alongside pottery associated with a later period.
