"Finds Gone Astray"
EXHIBITION: Artifacts stolen and smuggled in the West Bank now on display in Jerusalem. Bible Lands Museum hosts a small collection of the 40,000 antiquities confiscated by the Civil Administration which, while stripped of origin stories, still have tales to tell (Amanda Borschel-Dan, Times of Israel). Included are three Aramaic incantion bowls, presumably from Babylonia. Also, some remarkable figurines, perhaps from Syria.
