Stolen Roman ballista stone returned

The thief cited the current coronavirus outbreak as the reason for returning the artifact.
A man has returned an ancient Roman projectile that he took from an ancient site in Jerusalem 15 years ago.  The man took the ballista stone from the City of David in the Jerusalem Walls National Park.
The ballista stones at the City of David likely date to the Roman siege of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE.
