The news is out: [An American tourist who pilfered and defaced a shard of an ancient Roman marble has mailed the piece back to Italy, begging for forgiveness.
This week the National Roman Museum received a parcel from Atlanta, Georgia, which contained a rock with “To Sam, love Jess, Rome 2017” written on it in marker pen, museum director Stéphane Verger told the Il Messaggero newspaper.
The rock was wrapped in newspaper, placed in a cardboard box, and sent with a note in which the sender expressed their shame, The Telegraph said.
“Please forgive me for being such an American a–hole,” the letter said. “I took something that was not mine to take.”]
At least, she knows herself pretty well.
