Death and denial: Stephanos Stephanou and the Syriac Bible
Arrested during a raid on antiquities smugglers, Stephanos Stephanou died in police custody. This tragic case seems to involve: theft, illicit trading and smuggling of antiquities; illegal undercover antiquities police work; deep state criminal activity; possible police brutality; and a cover-up by Church and State. I explore the story of Stephanos Stephanou and the Syriac Bible over on Human Rights Archaeology.
