photos of the 77 artefacts stolen from the Olympic Museum, Olympia, Greece

I have explored the case of the Olympic Museum robbery; and translated the Greek Ministry of Culture and Tourism’s notice, and the descriptions (and dimensions) of the stolen artefacts. Here, I have reproduced the photographic records of the objects missing from the museum in Olympia.

(You can also download a Word document copy of the Culture Ministry’s (Greek-language) descriptive and photographic catalogue of the 77 artefacts stolen from the Museum of the History of the Olympic Games. The original photo records are available on the Ministry’s website (DOC).)

Note 1: photographs 61 and 62 are the same; photo 62 is an upload error.

Note 2: I cannot see clearly enough to be sure, but I think photographs 71 and 72 are the same; I think photo 71 is an upload error. (72’s inventory number matches its description, and the object appears to fit its description as a bull. I cannot read 71’s inventory number, but the object is supposed to be a horse.)
