Looted Ethiopian Artifacts Withdrawn from Sale at British Auction House

by Cassie Packard June 24, 2021 In response to appeals from the Ethiopian authorities, a leather-bound Ethiopian Coptic Bible and a set of Victorian graduated horn beakers had been withdrawn from a June 17 sale at Busby, a small public sale home in southwest England. The artifacts had been looted in 1868 in the course of the Battle of Maqdala, a punitive raid by British colonial forces towards Emperor Tewodros II. Negotiations relating to the objects’ repatriation are reportedly underway between the consignor and the Ethiopian authorities. Tewodros, who reigned from 1855 to 1868, sought to reunify Ethiopia via a collection of navy campaigns and strategic alliances.
