If Truth be Told....

Oscar Muscarella, "An Unholy Quartet: Museum Trustees, Antiquity Dealers, Scientific Experts, and Government Agents"

There is, however, some irony here, and forgeries sold on the antiquities market can make us smile, albeit bitterly: they were not plundered from ancient sites
