A 64-year-old man was arrested in the northern Greek city of Drama on Thursday after police found in his possession priceless antiquities, including 5,533 ancient coins and jewellery.

A raid at the suspect’s house and office found coins dating from the Iron Age, to the Byzantine and Ottoman periods, along with 69 objects ranging from rings, bracelets, arrowheads, human figurines as well as a vase of the Hellenistic period.

Living in greece I expect people are almost tripping up over it. people must find items in their gardens. don't know what the laws are over there if you find anything in your garden. he was more than likely plundering sites though I expect. wonder if he had a detector :g43:

in athens you cant rebuild a dwelling without funding an arki dig which could take years of your money ,so locals just leave buildings to fall down .and ancient crumbling dwellings are common in some areas.some folks torch them and hope to get around the law ,but sometimes it dont work so theres burnt out shells as well as crumbling ruins..many areas are badly in need of regeneration in athens
