Perfect packaging; all documents (incl. the expertise of 1983) were with the shipment. The photos and infos have been correct - just the weight was not indicated (heavier than expected)..

Nice piece of ancient art, but one lip was broken off. However, I think that I can glue it and repair in the most excellent manner. Pieces of ancient art remain fragile, especially during transport
