GAZIANTEP, TURKEY - DECEMBER 08 : Missing pieces of the famed “Gypsy girl mosaic” are on display during its temporary public exhibit in its original home at Zeugma Mosaic Museum in Turkey’s southeastern Gaziantep province on December 08, 2018. Turkish Culture and Tourism Minister Mehmet Nuri Ersoy also attended of the ceremony. The pieces were discovered in the early 1960s during unauthorized excavations in the ancient Roman town of Zeugma, and the parts were smuggled abroad. Years later, the pieces turned up on exhibit at Bowling Green State University, after the university bought the mosaics for $35,000. ( Kerem Kocalar - Anadolu Agency )
