      According to Toronto Star:

      "The documentary speculates that the James ossuary was stolen shortly after the
      tomb was found. The archaeologists examining the tomb 26 years ago found 10
      ossuaries, but only nine are in storage at the IAA. In The Lost Tomb, it is
      alleged that the James ossuary is that missing box."

      James Tabor's The Jesus Dynasty (pp. 31-33) previously raised this as a possible
      identity.

      But Amos Kloner, "A Tomb with Inscribed Ossuaries in East Talpiot," 'Atiqot 29
      (1996) page 17 Table 3 plainly lists that (#10) ossuary as having "No
      Inscription." If it had no inscription in 1980 how can it be an
      anciently-inscribed "James" ossuary?

      This is merely one of the items that do not add up.
