Turkey, according to this story, is trying to get the Louvre to turn over some rare tiles. Museum officials there say that the tiles were taken illegally by the French. Way down low in the story is an intriguing line, that the Turkish government is also "in talks with the Boston Museum in the United States..."

Sorry, we don't know a "Boston Museum". So we asked the MFA if it could be the museum in question. Nope, according to spokeswoman Kelly Gifford. The Turkish government has not contacted the museum, she said.

If they did get a call, we suspect it would be about the Weary Herakles, which you can read about by scrolling down on this page.
