Thanks for the warning. It never occurred to me to check the dealer out.

Just a word of caution.  Be careful when dealing with antiquities
and find out swhat sort of reputation the individual has.  There is a
bad problem today in looting of archaeological sites (and more recently,

museums) and these items are frequently picked up in good faith by
who don't know any better.  I don't know if these people are legit or
but I didnt' see anything on the site saying where the stuff came from
how they acquired it.

I know that getting to own the real thing is really cool, but the line 
between buying something legit and actively supporting the looting of 
archaeological remains (an act I personally feel should be given the
penalty, the looting that is, not the supporting)  is so blurry as to be

mpossible to distinguish.

Sorry for the lecture - just one of those things.
