British Museum Returns Ancient Greek Statue to Libyan Embassy in London (Photos)

LONDON — London’s British Museum returned a looted ancient Greek statue to Libyan Embassy. The 2nd century BC funerary statue from the ancient Greek city of Cyrene, thought to represent either the goddess Demeter or more likely her daughter Persephone, is now displayed at the Libyan Embassy in London.

The statue was returned to the Libyan embassy in April after being temporarily stored at the British Museum after it was seized several years ago by British Border Force officials at Heathrow airport in London, having been illicitly imported into Britain to be offered for sale.
