a tourist returns stolen antiquities after 15 years for a strange reason

a tourist, who was identified only as Nicole, returned a package containing two pieces of Mosaic And parts of a terracotta vase and a colorful ceramic piece to a travel agent in Pompeii South Italy attached with a letter of confession.

In her speech, Nicole, who was in her early twenties when she visited “Pompeii” in 2005, indicated that she had stolen artifacts due to her poor financial condition, following her breast cancer.

Nicole said: “Please take all the pieces  … They bring bad luck,” according to the British newspaper “The Guardian”.

She added that she did not want to keep anything dating back to an ancient history, noting that the artifacts she stole had a “negative energy” linked to the destruction of the area from which they were taken.

Nicole attached the parcel to another letter from a Canadian couple with stolen stones from the same site also in 2005, in which they indicated that they took them without thinking of the pain and suffering of those who lived in this part of the earth during the eruption of the blessings of Vesuvius.

The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 AD, the volcano on the western coast of Naples in Italy covered the neighboring Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum with ash and molten rocks within minutes, killing thousands.
