The Symes Pan: Update

I had noted that Cambridge University researcher, Dr Christos Tsirogiannis, had spotted that a Pan on offer at Christie's today appeared in the Schinousa archive. The lot has been withdrawn.

So I am sorry i do not understand. Which Pan was stolen ? the Sotheby's one or the Christie's one ? Both ? I see you don't publish a lot of comments...Not very objective of your part...Please do not lead people to hatred when you don't have serious proves like photos and just a :"Professor x said so..." I hate people like Medici but I fight them with serious leads. You cant accuse auction houses or dealers or collectors without serious proof.
