Amenhotep III lost eye
At the bottom of one of numerous short pieces about Egypt's request for the return of the St Louis mask, was this short paragraph on the Kansas City Star website, from the Associated Press: "The Supreme Council of Antiquities said it also asked Basel Museum in Switzerland to return the left eye of a statue of king Amenhotep III, which it said was stolen from a temple in Luxor several years ago."
