Roman marble head of a woman

In October, 1999 The Art Loss Register identified a Roman Marble Head of a Woman dating from the 2nd Century AD, which was returned to Tunisia in 2000 having been stolen in 1998 from the Sfax Museum and registered on our database from an Interpol report submitted to us in 1999. 

It was discovered by Scotland Yard officers in a lockup in London having taken eleven months to reach the United Kingdom from Tunisia via Europe.
