Minneapolis museum to return looted vase

The news release announcing the impending return of what’s known as the Volute Krater said only that “the MIA became concerned about the provenance of the krater” it had bought in 1983. After making inquiries along with Italian authorities and experts, as well as investigators from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the museum said it became clear that its vase, dating from about 450 BC, was in fact the one pictured in photos seized from Medici.
