A list of the artefacts discovered on your journeys.

Description

Artefacts (財宝, Zaihou?, lit. Treasure), also called Treasures, can be obtained through Errands or during the main game's story in Final Fantasy Tactics. The exceptions are two Artefacts that can neither be viewed nor accessed normally and can only be seen via a Gameshark, because they are obtained after passing the point of no return: the Leo and Virgo auracites. Most Artefacts are references to previous entries of the series or to the real world.
