The SCA has also released an inventory of items stolen from Tel El-Faraein, but I am relying on the Ahram Online report because I cannot find it.  The news from Tel El-Faraein is not too terrible (my bold), although this only covers 25 of the 27 items stolen:

Mohamed Abdel Maqsoud, the director of the central administration for antiquities in Alexandria and Lower Egypt told Ahram Online that the inventory at Tel El-Faraein revealed that 27 objects were missing from the storehouse, which houses thousands of objects from excavations carried out in different sites there.

He explained that the missing objects included 20 bronze coins from the Roman and Islamic eras, a limestone relief engraved with a Greco text, a statue inscribed with a hieroglyphic text and four clay pots.

Hi Patrick, I still cannot find it, and it doesn't seem to be on the SCA site with the Egyptian Museum list. Could you please leave a link. Scatty Kate
