The Litany of Larceny is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This unmarked side quest for the Skyrim Thieves Guild involves collecting various trophies found all over Skyrim.

These special items serve as a visual reminder of the Dragonborn's accomplishments with the Skyrim Thieves Guild. They are displayed on the trophy cases in the Ragged Flagon Cistern. There are two sets of trophies obtained by separate methods, all while in the service of the Thieves Guild.


I should take [the trophy] to Delvin Mallory at the Ragged Flagon to determine its true value.


  1. Return the Queen bee Statue to Delvin
  2. Return the Honningbrew Decanter to Delvin
  3. Return the East Empire Shipping Map to Delvin
  4. Return the Model Ship to Delvin
    • Found in the Snow Veil Catacombs
  5. Return the Dwemer Puzzle Cube to Delvin
  6. Return the Bust of the Gray Fox to Delvin
  7. Return the Eye of the Falmer to Delvin


"Well, well. I was looking for this little beauty. If you happen across any other unusual trinkets like this, be sure and bring them to me. I promise it'll be worth the effort."
Delvin Mallory

The first group of trophies can be found while completing quests from the main Thieves Guild questline. These items can be sold to Delvin Mallory, for leveled amounts of gold, from 100–800 (the value of these items are affected by Barter bonuses and Speech perks).

The second group of trophies are rewards for completing a set number of "jobs" for Delvin and Vex (randomized missions known as radiant quests). As more jobs are completed, more trophies are unlocked. The first seven trophies are unique versions of the items that are the targets of Vex's sweep jobs and burglary jobs, while the eighth is a safe filled with replenishing randomized loot.

A final trophy, the Crown of Barenziah, is unlocked by completing the side-quest "No Stone Unturned."

Removing items from the trophy case is not counted as stealing, and they can be taken to sell or have as decoration in the Dragonborn's home.

Larceny trophies[]

Trophy Location

Queen Bee Statue
1. Queen Bee Statue

Located on the second floor of the Goldenglow Estate, on a bedside table in Aringoth's bedroom.

Honninbrew Decanter
2. Honningbrew Decanter

Located in Sabjorn's office at the Honningbrew Meadery. The key to the office is given towards the end of the "Dampened Spirits" quest, but the room with the trophy needs to be picked open as the key does not unlock the door with the trophy.

East Empire Shipping Map
3. East Empire Shipping Map

Can be found in office overlooking East Empire Company Warehouse, located on the table within the room. One man in the office, and there are a few patrolling the area below it.

Model Ship
4. Model Ship

It can be found in the Snow Veil Catacombs, in a room with a wooden staircase and a stone staircase. The wooden stairs lead to the room with the ship. Once the ship is removed from the pedestal, a trap will drop exploding jars down onto the oil-covered floor. It is easier to grab the ship while standing in the doorway and simply retreat into the hall until the fire goes out.
Note: If the oil is set on fire before taking the ship, the ship will be hurled across the room by the explosion.
(Recommended): The Telekinesis spell can be used to bring the ship to the Dragonborn without having to step into the room. The explosive jars will still drop but no damage will be received. One way to get Telekinesis is through the College of Winterhold main questline as there is a chance the spell tome will be available when doing "The Staff of Magnus" quest (as soon as you enter the crypt, look for a table on the right and the spell tome may be there). Another way to get telekinesis is to go to Redwater DenDG where there will be one next to the body of a mage in a cell if the Dragonborn drinks the Redwater Skooma and goes to a booth.

Dwemer Puzzle Cube
5. Dwemer Puzzle Cube

Located inside Calcelmo's Laboratory which is a part of the Dwemer Museum in Markarth. Found on a pedestal in the room with the door exiting to the Wizards' Balcony.

Bust of the Grey Fox
6. Bust of the Gray Fox

Located within Riftweald Manor in Riften. The bust can be found in the basement on a table near the exit to the Ratway Vault. It is sitting next to the quest objective of "The Pursuit," and can easily be overlooked.

Left Eye of the Falmer
7. Left Eye of the Falmer

Located in the final chamber of Irkngthand on the corpse of Mercer Frey.

Click to show
  •  PS3   PC   The East Empire Shipping Map may be bugged and not activate the proper quest. If dropped or stored it may not be possible to take it again.
  •  PC   360   PS3   The quest to return the final item, the Left Eye of the Falmer is sometimes bugged and does not appear.
    •  PC   To fix this, enter the console command SetStage TGlarceny 80. This will give the Dragonborn the quest to return the Left Eye to Delvin. Then the command player.additem 1994f 1 will add the Eye to the inventory. Returning to Delvin to turn in the quest before killing Mercer will complete the quest. If Mercer is killed before turning the quest in, the quest simply disappears from the journal as soon as the body is looted.
  •  PC   If the Eye cannot be returned, a way of getting it to display on the trophy case is to use console commands and type prid 000e8efe and hit enter then typing enable to show the Left Eye of the Falmer on the case in the correct position.
    •  PS3   This bug is fixed after patch 1.9.
  •  PC   360   PS3   NX   The Jeweled Pitcher does not appear after completing 75 jobs.
    •  PC   A solution is to use the console command E8F04.enable. The pitcher should appear where it should be.
  •  PC   360   PS3   It appears that finishing the Thieves Guild quest "Darkness Returns" will sometimes prevent handing in more larceny items to Delvin.
  • If any of the larceny items are removed after they have been sold to Delvin, they cannot be replaced and they will fall through the shelves. On the  PC   they may be placable on the shelves but will disappear upon leaving the area.
  •  PC   360   PS3   If one or more larceny targets are in the inventory when Delvin gives a special mission, the targets can not be handed in. After completing the special mission, the targets still can't be handed in and the targets won't even be quest items anymore. This means they can be freely dropped or sold, although this appears to make them 0 value.
  •  PC   PS3   Sometimes side job rewards behind the Guildmaster's desk do not appear.
    • This can be corrected by using the console command for the missing object followed by enable. Codes to select missing objects are as follows, in order they should be rewarded:
      • Jeweled Candlestick: prid E8EFF
      • Ornate Drinking Horn: prid E8F00
      • Golden Ship Model: prid E8F05
      • Golden Urn: prid E8F03
      • Jeweled Goblet: prid E8F02
      • Jeweled Pitcher: prid E8F04
      • Jeweled Flagon: prid E8F01
      • Safe: prid 103398
    • The console command getglobalvalue TGRMasterTotal will list the number of side jobs completed.
  •  360   It may not be possible to turn in any targets if the Dwemer Puzzle Cube is in the inventory.
    • Reverting to a previous game save before the cube was picked up will allow the other items to be returned. However, the cube still cannot be returned.
  •  PS3   PS4   NX   Sometimes the East Empire Map will fall down upon entering the cistern. If the model ship that is placed in front of it is there, the ship will fall as well.
