ICOM has published a new Red List to help customs, dealers and other officials identify at risk antiquities.  Called the Emergency Red List of Egyptian Cultural Objects at Risk it is available in both English and Arabic.  A Red List doesn't identify specific items known to be missing but shows the types of objects likely to be traded illictly to encourage thorough validation of provenance if an artefact is discovered in transit or comes up for sale.

It's a high quality production which should really help, especially the images to help explain the types of object being described.
