Recovery of items from Qantara East

Ahram Online (Nevine El-Aref)

Bronze coins and clay vessels stolen from the Qantara East archaeological magazines were recovered.

Following archaeological investigations, a committee from the ministry of state for antiquities (MSA) approved the authenticity of five bronze coins and twenty-two clay vessels which were found in the possession of Bedouins at the canal city of Port Fouad.

Youssef Khalifa, head of the archaeological committee, told Ahram Online that the newly recovered objects were among the objects reported missing from Qantara East warehouses following the security vacuum that overwhelmed Egypt following the January revolution.
