Period (300 -100 B.C.)
This cat reliquary was purchased
on the antiquities market by the late James
A. Diefenbeck in 1996. It was left to the University
Museum of Southern Illinois University, who
contacted the SCA and offered to return it.
Arrangements were made, and the reliquary was
returned to Egypt on July 31, 2008. It is now
at the Cairo Museum.
