It is now being kept in British Museum but for a short time it was allowed to be shown in Iran.

In One side It is not their own and they should return it completely but in other hand, looking at Iranian museum’s condition and the management of these places one should may consider this would be safer to keep this cylinder in a highly developed museum such as British’s . I hope someday we can have the technology to keep it safe and bring it back.
