Oded Golan, an Israeli antiquities collector who owns the hotly contested James Ossuary and the Jehoash Inscription, was charged as a forger in the seven-year “Forgery Trial of the Century.” At the conclusion of the trial, he was acquitted of all forgery charges. Although it was otherwise not involved in the trial, the inscribed ivory pomegranate was referred to as a forgery in the forgery case.
