a second speculative fiction, perhaps

Several people in blogland have recently become excited over new finds at Oxyrhynkhos. Let me just insert a cautionary word from The Allegrezza Ficcione.
Unable to contain his inquisitiveness, he asked Dae what she & Joo-eun were doing, was told that they were forging ancient Egyptian & Greek commercial documents, that one of Tamur's sidelines was selling them through blackmarket channels. Tamur admitted it, said that the dig at Oxyrhynkhos had given him the opportunity to suggest to prospective buyers that he might be able to obtain documents smuggled out from the site. Allegrezza was surprised when he told him how many museums had taken advantage of his offers.
Looks like Tamur expanded the scope of his operations.
