This week at UNGA, the U.S. returned to Iran this artifact that was seized from a smuggler by Customs enforcement. The artifact is a 7th century BC silver griffin-shaped ceremonial drinking vessel and was likely looted from a cave in northwestern Iran. It is considered the premier griffin of antiquity, a gift of the Iranian people to the world, and the United States is pleased to return it to the people of Iran.
