Some stolen artefacts recently recovered from Mossgreen Auctions in Melbourne, and returned to Egypt, although I don’t understand how a Canopic jar could “belong” to one of “Horus’s sons dating from the Middle Kingdom”? I guess a mistranslation for one of the four gods who personified the jars.

Al-Ahram Weekly | Heritage | Recovered from down under:

Among the most unique of these objects are a 26th-Dynasty bronze statue of the Apis Bull; a glass statue of Maat, the goddess of justice; a bronze statue of Osiris, the god of prosperity; and a lid from a canopic jar that belonged to one of Horus’s sons dating from the Middle Kingdom.
