A 7-1/2 -foot statue of the goddess Aphrodite owned by the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles has long been the subject of a contentious debate over whether it was illegally obtained. Now, journalists covering the Getty’s recent troubles have “found new information that undermines the statue’s official history, bolsters claims that it was illicitly excavated in Sicily and shows that the museum bought the Aphrodite despite repeated warnings that it had been looted.”
