How it works:
- Version 1: at markets, stall owners will try to pass their ware (e.g. oil lamps) off as antiques.
- Version 2: at Petra, touts will offer you coins claimed to have been found from the tombs or bracelets with ancient engravings.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- It can be difficult to tell if you are not an expert. Hence, it is best to avoid buying anything advertised as an antique.
