SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A marble bust that a Texas woman bought
for about $35 from a Goodwill store is temporarily on display at a
San Antonio museum after experts determined it was a centuries-
old sculpture missing from Germany since World War II.

The bust, which art collector Laura Young found at Goodwill in
2018, once belonged in the collection of King Ludwig I of Bavaria, according to the San Antonio Museum of Art, which is temporarily displaying the piece until it is returned to Germany next year.

The ancient Roman bust dates to the first century B.C. or first
century A.D. and historians believe it may depict a son of Pompey
the Great, who was defeated in a civil war by Julius Caesar.
