Return of the prodigal stone

Riggers prepare to return a stone from an Egyptian temple to its permanent home at the University of Pennsylvania Museum Oct. 23. The stone was one of more than 130 ancient Egyptian artifacts that spent the past three years touring the country with the Museum-organized Searching for Ancient Egypt exhibition. The Museum will publicly celebrate the objects return with a special Ancient Egyptian Afternoon Nov. 11 (see Editors Pick).
