Christos Tsirogiannis, an expert at identifying looted antiquities, said he suspected the British Museum had not specified how many items were missing or what they looked like because it either had incomplete or no records for some of the objects.

Tsirogiannis, who heads illicit antiquities trafficking research for the Unesco chair on threats to cultural heritage at the Ionian University in Corfu, added: “That will make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, for the British Museum to prove that these particular objects are the ones that they are missing from the collections. That will eliminate the possibility to identify them and claim them back.”
