    Caligula Artifact found

    yeah lets steal from a old lady...
    From https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world...cid=spartandhp
    ROME, Italy The Roman Emperor Caligula is renowned for his sadistic, debauched rule of ancient Rome that lead to his own assassination after just four years in power.

    Now Italian and American authorities are wondering how a piece of his decadent lifestyle an elaborate inlaid marble mosaic from one of his ceremonial ships wound up as coffee table on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
    To antiques dealer Helen Fioratti it's quite simple: She and her husband Nereo, an Italian journalist, bought the antiquity more than 45 years ago from an Italian aristocratic family, who lived on the shores of Lake Nemi.
