Apulian pottery, the Schinoussa Archive and Christie's

Source: Schinoussa Archive
Sources in Greece have picked up on the story that images of objects that feature in the Schinoussa archive appear to feature in the forthcoming sale of antiquities at Christie's in the Rockefeller Plaza, New York.

Will staff at Christie's be demonstrating their commitment to the rigorous due diligence process by contacting the Italian Ministry of Justice?

Why did Christie's fail to disclose this part of the collecting history for the dinos?
