Mary Agria has contacted me to say that one of the case in the A Jazeera footage is the one which contains the blue hippo.  I haven't checked, but she says she can see it safely in the case but other items are missing.  However, I thought the hippo was on tour.  More confusion.  I just wish we had a full list of damaged items.

Hi Kate,
Yes, the footage shows one of the hippos (there are a number of them). I think the hippo in question might be the reclining blue faience hippo from Lisht, Cairo C.G. 58853. I suspect you're thinking of a more famous hippo. It doesn't look like this one:
I'm not sure what else was in the case with it. Thanks for your great work on this blog!
