Antiquities trade, Turkey-Cyprus: Syriac Bible
Derek Fincham noted Simon Bahceli's article about the trade in antiquities (here, a Syriac Bible) from Turkey to/through Cyprus. Turkish Cypriot police arrested nine local looter-smugglers at Famagusta Bus Terminal, but the antiquities trafficker and one other suspect escaped. I explore the context and the conflicts of this antiquities trade over on human rights archaeology.
