This undated photo provided by the U.S Department of Justice shows an ancient mosaic believed to have been looted from war-torn Syria and illegally imported into the United States. The U.S. government has filed an asset forfeiture complaint involving the mosaic where it was seized from a Southern California man. The Los Angeles U.S. Attorney's Office said Friday, May 25, 2018, that the 1-ton (0.9 metric ton) mosaic depicting Hercules is believed to have been created in the 3rd or 4th century and is consistent with mosaics found in Syria, particularly around the city of Idlib.
