Iraq Antiquity Thefts: al-Mayahi Summary of the Figures

In the article "Iraq, US reach deal on stolen artefacts: official", AFP July 26, 2013 we are told:
Some 15,000 artefacts were stolen from the national museum in Baghdad by looters in the chaos that followed the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq, Mayahi said. More than 4,000 have been recovered. Authorities have recovered a further 130,000 artefacts stolen from elsewhere in the country, but there are still tens of thousands of pieces missing."
