Turkey is seeking to reclaim the major series of imperial Roman bronzes that were removed from the Sebasteion at Bubon in southern Turkey. The statue bases were left in situ and have been recorded.
I have discussed this notorious act of cultural property removal elsewhere in the American Journal of Archaeology [JSTOR].
There are implications for the Ny Carlsberg Glypotek in Copenhagen, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the private collector Shelby White.
It would be a great achievement if Turkey could reunite the bronzes, marble sculptures and their related inscriptions from this single structure.
