the thing with gold is, those could have been placed by some scrupulous archaeologists and no one could tell.
and sell it to museums, collectors, governments or whatever deals they have in place with the country that the dig takes place.
think indiana jones bad guy. they exist. black and grey market.
the only criteria is to actually find a real, untouched tomb that can be confirmed by the community, and "find" whatever gold you can smuggle
ancient gold and an expertly done forgery with historical significance could probably fetch millions for whoever sells it.
