Tourism and Antiquities Police have recovered a stolen limestone naos (shrine) hidden inside a residential home in Mit-Rahina town in Al-Badrasheen city, south of Cairo.
http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/85488.aspx
Antiquities Minister Mohamed Ibrahim said the ministry's archaeological committee had confirmed the naos is authentic and dates from the Old Kingdom.
It includes four statues of persons fixed on four bases engraved with hieroglyphic verses from The Pyramid Texts.
The first statue is 16 cm tall and depicts a standing figure wearing a black wig.
The second is 19.2 cm tall and features a person wearing a coloured wig,
while the third statue is 9.2 cm in height and may be of a child wearing a coloured wig. On his chest is engraved line of hieroglyphics.
The fourth statue is 16.4 cm tall and depicts a person with a black wig.
Aly El-Asfar, deputy head of the Ancient Egyptian department at the ministry, said the statues could be of the same person different during stages of life. The naos is now under investigation to discover its original location and whether it was dug illegally.

..........................

"whether it was dug illegally" of dat het uit een museum of een opslagplaats komt?

Een standbeeldschrijn uit het Oude Rijk.... een foto ware interessant geweest.

Alles blijkt zijn voordelen te hebben (groen lachje):

02/12/13
In an unusual turn of events, authorities pursuing a gang of antiquities smugglers along the Suez Canal have accidently stumbled across a Greek limestone relief beneath a residential house in the city of Al-Qantara East.

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/88083.aspx
The Tourism and Antiquities Police (TAP) discovered the relief within the walls of an underground, ancient tomb. It was recovered today in coordination with the Ministry of State Antiquities (MSA), according to minister Mohamed Ibrahim.
Mohamed Abdel Maqsoud, Head of the Ancient Egyptian Antiquities Section at the MSA, said that the relief is 40 cm tall and 20cm large, and engraved with four lines of Greek text, with a winged sun disk displayed at the top. The relief is now under restoration for future display in the town's storage museum.
The tomb is in a very poor state of preservation, but it was reported to contain remains of human skeletons and bones as well as clay pots and fragments.
Abdel Maqsoud believes that the tomb could be part of a Graeco-Roman necropolis, or city of the dead, that has since been built over and turned into a residential area.
The city of Al-Qantara East is located on the eastern side of the Suez Canal, about 160 kilometers northeast of Cairo and 50 kilometers south of Port Said.

Egypt museum hurt by political turmoil

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/88237.aspx

"We don't even have the money to buy office supplies like paper clips and pens, and pay for computer maintenance," El-Shazly said. "It's always been difficult because the money generated by the museum went to the government and rarely came back to us. But now, with no money coming from tourism, it's worse than ever."

Ibrahim said the ministry's revenues, including the entrance fees from tourist sites, fell from 111 million Egyptian pounds ($16 million) in October 2010 to 7 million Egyptian pounds ($1.14 million) in October 2013.

Even more detrimental, few if any of Egypt's precious antiquities are touring abroad.
...
Such foreign tours were a lucrative revenue source, but virtually ground to a halt after Egypt's chief archaeologist during Mubarak's rule, Zahi Hawass, was forced to resign in 2011 on corruption allegations. Hawass denied the allegations, and he was not charged.
...
Antiquities officials are now reluctant to sign any deals with exhibitions abroad for fear of being accused of corruption ...

The torso of a 26th Dynasty green faience ushabti figure stolen during the January 25 Revolution is to return to Egypt next week from Brussels

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/88491.aspx
Minister of State for Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim said that the artifact was broken into two pieces. The lower part remained in the museum while the torso was stolen and smuggled out of the country and sold to a Belgian citizen.
A few days ago, continued Ibrahim, the Belgian citizen presented the torso to a French archaeologist to ascertain its authenticity and value. The French archaeologist recognised that the torso had been in collection the Egyptian Museum. He had studied it in 1989 at the museum.
The French archaeologist reported the find to the Ministry of State for Antiquities (MSA), which in turn undertook the required procedures to recover it. The MSA contacted the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Egyptian embassy in Brussels, Interpol and UNESCO in order to help in the restitution of the artifact.
"The torso was among the pieces stolen from the Egyptian Museum on 28 January 2011, but regretfully it was not included in the report issued at that time about the missing objects," Ibrahim told Ahram Online. Ibrahim added that he referred the case to the prosecutor general for investigation on why the torso was not included in the missing items report.


Dit voorwerp stond voor zover ik weet inderdaad niet op de lijst van gestolen voorwerpen:
http://www.sca-egypt.org/eng/pdfs/EMC_3 ... -03-28.pdf
Betekent dit dat er mogelijk nog voorwerpen gestolen waren?

Een Egyptisch beeld van meer dan 2.500 jaar oud dat tijdens de opstand van 2011 uit een museum in Caïro werd gestolen, is teruggevonden in België. ...
De sculptuur van groen aardewerk was vervolgens illegaal naar België gebracht. Een Franse deskundige die het analyseerde, bracht de Egyptische autoriteiten op de hoogte. Het beeld dateert uit de 26ste dynastie, dus meer dan 500 jaar voor Christus.


(het terugvinden van het beeld van de dochter van Echnaton uit het Museum van Malawi wordt hieronder vermeld in mijn volgende bericht van vandaag)

Het gaat dus om het bovenste gedeelte van een shabti, een funerair beeldje dat de overledene bij zijn taken in het hiernamaals diende te vervangen, en dat oorspronkelijk een totale hoogte had van ongeveer twaalf centimeter... of zoiets, want meer gegevens heb ik er niet over, wegens mijn opmerking in vorige bericht (welke niet vermeld wordt in de Nederlandstalige berichtgeving) dat deze shabti niet bij de gestolen voorwerpen uit het Museum in Cairo vermeld werd.

Meer over shabti's: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=606

Het museum van Mallawi in Egypte kreeg ... een beeld van de dochter van farao Achnaton opnieuw in het bezit. Dat museum was in augustus dit jaar geplunderd ...
In een persbericht deelde de minister ook mee dat het museum van Mallawi een 32 centimeter groot beeld uit kalksteen, dat de dochter van de farao Achnaton en dus de zus van farao Toetanchamon voorstelt, terugkreeg. Achnaton (Echnaton of Amenhotep IV) heerste bijna 1.500 jaar voor Christus over Egypte. ‘Dit stuk is een van de meest belangrijke van het museum’, aldus de minister in het persbericht.
Hij voegde er nog aan toe dat ongeveer 800 van de 1.050 stukken uit de Oudheid zijn teruggevonden.

Ankhesom statue goes back to Egypt's Malawi Museum

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/88598.aspx
Almost four months after being stolen, the statue of King Tutankhamen’s sister has been recovered by the authorities, Mohamed Ibrahim, the minister of state for antiquities, told Ahram Online on Sunday.
The 32-centimeter-tall limestone statue depicts Ankhesom, sister of King Tut and daughter of King Akhenaten, standing naked and holding an offering in her right hand.
Ibrahim said that the statue's recovery had been undertaken along with the Tourism and Antiquities Police, after a gang of antiquities smugglers had been apprehended and one of its members tipped off the police regarding the statue's location.


Berichtgeving over de plundering van het Museum van Malawi is terug te vinden in eerdere mededelingen in deze berichtenreeks, van 14/08/13 tot 24/09/13.

Malawi Museum is under restoration

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/89276.aspx
The Malawi Museum in the Upper Egyptian city of Al-Minya is regaining its original appearance four months after it was looted.
In a closed meeting Monday with the governor of Al-Minya, Minister of State of Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim set the outline of the restoration plan for the museum.
...
The restoration plan, Ibrahim said, will be carried out by the National Service Agency of the Army under the supervision of the Ministry of State of Antiquities while the Al-Minya governorate will provide the budget of three millions Egyptian pounds. Ibrahim promised that once the work starts, it will take six months to reopen the museum, which will help promote tourism in Upper Egypt.


De berichten over de plundering van het Malawi Museum, en de zoektocht naar de vermiste artefacten, zijn makkelijk op te zoeken in deze berichtenreeks, door hierboven, naast 'plaats reactie' "Malawi" in te geven.

Egypt’s heritage in danger

http://weekly.ahram.org.eg/News/4962/47 ... anger.aspx
The threats are ongoing, and they may even be becoming worse since security remains insufficient, officials sometimes do not correctly do their jobs, and the attention of the public is directed towards politics rather than at the country’s heritage.

Bust of a 26th dynasty prince recovered from Brussels

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/90307.aspx
The bust of a 26th dynasty prince that was stolen from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir during the 2011 revolution is returning to Egypt tomorrow from Belgium.
Minister of State for Antiquities (MSA) Mohamed Ibrahim said in a statement that the bust was stolen from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir on 28th January 2011 in the midst of the revolution and the lack of security that overwhelmed the whole country. Thugs and vandals broke into the museum from a glass window on its roof, damaged showcases and stole some of the museum's collection, he said.
Some of these objects were retrieved while others have remained missing, including this bust.
Ibrahim explained that the bust was recognized in an auction hall in Brussels by a French archaeologist who carried out studies on it at the Egyptian Museum in 1989. He immediately informed the Egyptian embassy in Brussels, which in turn reported the case to the MSA.
Ahmed Ali, director of the repatriation of stolen antiquities section in the MSA, told Ahram Online that the bust is documented in the archaeological files of the Egyptian museum. It was discovered in 1858 in Giza. The bust is 29 centimeters tall and inscribed with the name of its owner, a prince and official.


Met foto.
Het gaat dan dus blijkbaar niet om een 'ushabti figure', zoals in dat eerdere bericht.
En ik herhaal:
Dit voorwerp stond voor zover ik weet niet op de lijst van gestolen voorwerpen:
Betekent dit dat er mogelijk nog voorwerpen gestolen waren uit het museum?

Security forces seize over 1,500 stolen antiquities in Cairo suburb

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/91037.aspx
The antiquities seized during a raid on a house in Zawiyat Abu Musallem, a Cairo suburb, on Monday included ancient statues, amulets and limestone false doors of the type commonly built in ancient Egyptian tombs as a threshold to the afterlife. ...
"The variety of the seized antiquities indicates that they are the result of illegal digging by armed gangs," Ibrahim said.
Ammunition found in the possession of a suspect underscored "the danger of these organised gains that carry out digs in secret and trade illegally in Egyptian antiquities", he said.
