It is believed that the artifact entered the United States illegally

A US federal court has ruled that the rare artifact, known as the Gilgamesh Dream Code, should be handed over to government authorities.

The archaeological inscription, estimated to be 3,500 years old, dates back to the civilization of Mesopotamia in what is now Iraq, a text from the Epic of Gilgamesh, one of the oldest literary works in the world.

Officials believe the piece entered the United States illegally and then sold to a Hobby Lobby group of arts and crafts stores.

The rare piece was purchased for display at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC.
