The info IS contained herein...you want it, you find it. Yet again, I suggest you see the links in the OP.
(As always, its a good idea to read ALL postings before submitting comments.)
As mention, it was Col. Campbell's responsibility to see to the loading the sarcophagus onto the Beatrice.
Quarantine IS a valid reason to delay the ship's departure, etc. Also, I don't have time to list the 1,000 reasons for the ship's actual schedule, and/or possible delays, etc.
EDIT: From the first link in the OP,
"....There is also another intriguing question about the Beatrice: what else was in its hold. It is surely unlikely that the sarcophagus was the only antiquity onboard.
Dr Ivan Negueruela of Spain’s National Museum for Maritime Archaeology in Cartagena, told the Spanish newspaper Laverdad (6th June): “The sarcophagus is somewhere on the coast between Cabo de Palos and Mazarrón.”
It is, he said “very important”, but then he adds intriguingly: “so are other objects that are at the bottom of the sea with it. Yes, there may be some surprises.”
The “surprises”, suggests the article, include 200 boxes of antiquities, containing funerary, pink granite sphinxes and gold pieces....."
Campbell's Chamber roof blocks are Tura Limestone until proven otherwise.
THE Cartouche in Campbell's Chamber IS Authentic, as are ALL other RC's Glyphs, until proven otherwise.
