A French citizen offered Egypt a piece of ancient carttonage from a painted sarcophagus he inherited from his grandfather

Minister of State for Antiquities, Mohamed Ibrahim, announced that the piece is 19cm long and that the Ministry of Antiquities is working with the Egyptian Embassy in Paris to bring the piece to Egypt this week.

The minister added that Egypt has also recovered a marble statue of a lion from Germany and a collection of Ptolemaic vessels made of glass from France. According to Ibrahim, these objects were stolen from store galleries in the northeastern city of Qantarah Al-Sharqiyya as a result of the lack of security that overwhelmed the country following January 2011 revolution.
