A Persian bas-relief dating back to 500 BC was unveiled at Tehran’s National Museum of Iran on Sunday, one month after a New York City court ordered it to be returned to Iran after more than 80 years out of the country.
The relic was being sold at an auction in New York City for $2.5 million (€ 2.1 million) and was returned to Iran after a New York Supreme Court judge ordered it to be returned to Iran in July. The artefact was delivered to Iranian officials on September 4.
Following its exposition at the National Museum of Iran, the artefact is expected to be returned back to its original place in Persepolis, central Iran.
“This event is an important event, that a historical piece belonging to Iran’s culture and Iran’s history was sent back to its real and right place. And certainly it is a remarkable and cultural happening for Iranians,” museum visitor Sara Kariman said.
