Looted sarcophagus returned to IAA

LARGE LOOTED ARTIFACT: 'Hand over that sarcophagus, citizen!' Roman-era artifact excavated illegally at an unidentified site in Israel returned to Israel Antiquities Authority (Israel HaYom). Actually, the citizen received the object from a deceased antiquities dealer and alerted the IAA so they could come and get it. Well done.
