The Metropoli­tan Mu­seum in New

York has re­turned an an­cient Egyp­tian cof­fin that it had pur­chased in July 2017 to the Gov­ern­ment of Egypt. The sar­coph­a­gus, in­scribed with the name Ned­je­mankh, a priest of the ram-god Heryshef, was dis­cov­ered to have been looted from Egypt in 2011. De­spite a rig­or­ous vet­ting pro­gramme, the mu­seum only re­cently learned of its false own­er­ship his­tory.
