Congratulations to Arthur Brand

I suspect several of my readers know Arthur Brand, who used to frequently post on numismatic discussion boards under the name of the ancient Greek die engraver Euainetos. Others may know of his Dutch-language book Het verboden Judas-evangelie en de schat van Carchemish (“Forbidden Gospel of Judas and the treasure of Carchemish”) which discussed a hoard of archaic Greek coins including Athenian Dekadrachms.

Brand has been working on stolen art for a while. His recent success, finding Hitler's hoard statues [], is bringing him much-deserved fame.

A 4:46 minute NPR piece lets Arthur tell the story.
