Artemis fresco stolen from Pompeii

A portion of a fresco of Apollo and Artemis has been stolen from the world-famous archeological site of Pompeii, Italian dailies reported Tuesday. Citing an employee at the world's largest open-air museum, newspapers Il Mattino and Il Messaggero said the fresco portion, measuring roughly 20x20 cm, has been missing from the House of Neptune for one week. 
Pompeii has been plagued for decades by accusations of mismanagement, neglect and even infiltration by the local Camorra mafia. The bits of the fresco still in situ look to be in a terrible state too.
