From the Guardian: ‘Oxford professor arrested on suspicion of ancient papyrus theft’

0
The Guardian just ran a story today about the ongoing circumstances with regard to Oxyrhynchus papyri that ended up missing and/or in private collections, “Oxford professor arrested on suspicion of ancient papyrus theft.” According to the article, Dirk Obbink was arrested “on suspicion of theft and fraud” last month but “has been released while inquiries continue.” I am reluctant to say any more than that. See the linked article for more details.
