In a recent report, New York City (Manhattan) District Attorney, Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., announced the formation of the Antiquities Trafficking Unit, which was created to work with U.S. Homeland Security to combat the trade of stolen antiquities. The Unit was formed after a number of culturally valuable pieces were found in New York City. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office recently announced the return of three ancient statutes to the Lebanese Republic. It will be interesting to see what other treasures this Unit will uncover.
