Looting in Cairo: List Published

The Press Office of what was Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) has now posted a list of objects that had been stolen from the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. The quality of the illustrations are not brilliant and the descriptions are less than full.

Museums, collectors and those involved in the trade need to be watchful for this material and indeed for other unrecorded items that may have been looted from archaeological sites or removed from excavation stores.

I am grateful to Lee Rosenbaum for the prompt on this and see her comment.
