Ancient Relic Stolen from the Met

Source: Daily Bugle -- NYC Ed.
IC Date: October 21, 2018


A representative from the Metropolitan Museum of Art has confirmed that just after closing on October 19th a relic from the Medieval Wing of the Museum was stolen. The relic — a spearhead dating back to 12 C.E. — was recovered from the Middle East during the First Crusade. Named "The Spear of Antioch," the ancient weapon was kept safe in a small church in Budapest until the early 1800s.

The priests of the church believed that the weapon may have been the Spear of Destiny — the weapon that delivered the last wound to Christ during the crucifixion. It is one of dozens that have been thought to be the holy weapon.

There is little information being shared by either the Met or NYPD concerning the robbery. A source from inside the Met security staff have linked the theft to the demonic incursion that has taken over New York City.
