Apamea, Hama: Roman Mosaics via Getty Images

I cannot even begin to express my thanks to Getty Images, for their extremely kind and enthusiastic help by allowing us to share their images of archaeological material stolen from Syria. They, like most people interested in art, hope that these help us track down stolen art and get it returned.

If any of these appear on the art market, they are looted from Apamea Hama, Syria.
