The Bubon statue in the Cleveland Museum of Art
In 1986 the Cleveland Museum of Art acquired a bronze statue (Inv. 1986.5). It had previously resided in the collection of Mr & Mrs Charles Lipson of Boston (Mass.). The Lipsons were also the owners of the bronze statue of Lucius Verus that has been returned to Turkey from the Shelby White collection. Both statues are reported to have the same findspot: 'reported to be from Ibecik (ancient Bubon in Lycia), Turkey' (Fire of Hephaistos no. 50; fig. 2 under no. 54).
Will the Cleveland Museum of Art be contacting Turkish authorities to arrange the return of this statue?
A discussion of the issues for this statue can be found on Chasing Aphrodite.
