120 is the multiplier I've always observed for my artifacts. Do you have any evidence that the wiki is wrong?

In this particular instance my own personal calculations just haven't matched up. I could be doing something incorrectly, but it's worth noting that neither:

A) Materials used x 120 = artifact value

nor

B) Base material x item multiplier x 120 + decorative materials x 120 = artifact value

It may deserve more research than that, but it's also worthy of note that the wiki is incorrect or incomplete in many respects, being just what it is and no more. It's no Bible of DF. More like a "Hitchiker's Guide".

[Base Value] * [Material Value] * [Quality Value] + [Decoration Base Value] * [Material Value] * [Quality Value]

The "base value" depends on the item.  Furniture is 10, statues are 25, anvils are 100, etc.
Material value is the value of the material (stone is 1 for all non-ores except flux (2) and obsidian (3)).
The quality value is 120 for artifacts.
Decoration base value is 10.
