Antiquities from Iraq continue to surface

Earlier this month Dutch authorities handed over 69 antiquities to Iraq ("Netherlands sends back Iraq artefacts", Agence France Presse July 9, 2009). The items were apparently found in two Dutch galleries; their names have not been given. The objects will be placed on temporary display in Leiden.

Perhaps they will be displayed near the South Italian armour that was acquired in 1998.
