CAIRO, Jan. 8 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities said on Tuesday that it received a stolen artifact retrieved recently from Britain.

The artifact contains cartouche of King Amenhotep I and was detected by the Egyptian Foreign Ministry during a display in an auction hall in London, a ministry statement said.

All measures were immediately taken to stop the sale of the stolen artifact until it was restored, the statement added.

Egypt, one of the most ancient civilizations, has been working effortlessly to preserve and retrieve its rich archaeological treasures and historical heritage, which will also help boost the once-flourishing tourism industry that has largely been affected by the political turmoil over the past five years.
