Hobby Lobby's Gilgamesh tablet for Museum of the Bible 'stolen,' feds say

  • Federal prosecutors on Monday called for returning an ancient artifact, the “Gilgamesh Dream Tablet,” that was stolen some years ago before it was unwittingly purchased by Hobby Lobby for display in the company’s Bible-themed museum in Washington, D.C.

    A Monday civil complaint filed by Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue’s office asks that the $1.67 million dollar artifact be given back to Iraq. The tablet, which is around 3,600 years old, was illegally imported into the U.S. in the early 2000s.
