Church leaders have, in an ecumenical gesture, come together in Dublin to appeal for the return of the head of an 800-year-old mummy that was stolen from a popular tourist site over the weekend, one of two thefts of historical antiquities in recent days.

Catholic Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin and Anglican Archbishop Michael Jackson of Dublin issued their public appeal on Feb. 27, reports.

They asked the public to report any clues relating to the identity of the attackers or the whereabouts of the looted head of the mummy, known as "The Crusader," taken during a raid on the crypt of St. Michan's Church.
