I have read in the ancient warfare few minutes ago in the article by Christian Violatti: "A front view of the Kasr-El-
Harit shield, (..). Originally stored in Cairo, now lost."

Is it really lost since when? Raffaele D'Amato went to take some pictures few years ago in Cairo and it was still there. Pics are in his book "Arms and armour of the imperial soldier".
It is in the Police Museum in Kairo now. I have pics somewhere.
That is the last news I knew from Raffaele. But the message reported is a (more recent?) news from Ancient Warfare published few days ago.
Maybe he was looking in the wrong museum of he did not check or just quoted  from elsewhere.
