I may have been a bit slow off the mark over the 'Achaemenid' Janus cup sold at Duke's in Dorchester last week.

According to Antiques Trade Gazette (The two faces of the £56,000 Sparks gold at Duke's), the three pieces of "purportedly" ancient gold had been "rejected by at least one major London auction house before Duke’s accepted them".
