Hundreds of Israelis recently turned in thousands of ancient artifacts during a temporary amnesty period offered by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA). These had been looted from sites in Israel over the years and illegally kept in homes and private collections. Some of the larger items included stone capitals, a sarcophagus, an ornate ossuary with rosettes, and massive Roman ballista stones that were larger than basketballs. Many smaller items were turned in as well, including tools, weapons, pottery vessels, figurines, scarabs, seals bullae, and coins. Unfortunately, since these antiquities were looted from ancient sites, their archaeological contexts are unknown. Still, the IAA will document and preserve the artifacts, and hopefully, some of them will be studied and displayed.
