BUCHAREST, ROMANIA—Gold and silver coins and jewelry looted from the ancient Dacian capital of Sarmizegetusa Regia have been recovered by police from a German auction house. One man has been arrested and charged with “complicity to the theft of cultural goods.” The first-century B.C. coins were taken between 2004 and 2007, and will return to Romania soon, according to prosecutors.
