Looting Matters, a blog about archaeology and ethics by the distinguished scholar David Gill of Swansea University, name-checks Rogues’ Gallery today in a post about the famously looted Morgantina Silver, returned to Italy by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2008 and currently on display at the Palazzo Massimo of the Museo Nazionale Romano, Rome (through May 23). In his wonderfully understated way, Gill notes that the book “says a great deal about the Met’s attitude to enlightenment and cosmopolitan ideals.”
