Recovered antiquities displayed in Colosseum

Stolen antiquities recovered by the Italian police were displayed in the Colosseum on Friday. The recovered pieces include frescoes from villas in Pompeii's hinterland. You can read the press releases here in English and here and here (with pictures) in Italian, but for the full saga you should take a look at David Gill's excellent Looting Matters blog.
