Hobby Lobby To Forfeit Smuggled Iraqi Antiquities

Cuneiform writing on a clay tablet improperly imported into the U.S. by the Hobby Lobby company, which is forfeiting thousands of items.

The company says its passion for historical Bibles and other artifacts led to “regrettable mistakes.” It will pay a $3 million dollar fine for improperly importing items such as ancient clay tablets.
