The two Greek suspects were arrested on Thursday in the southern town of Pyrgos. Police say one of the men also had six antique silver coins in his house.
Under Greek law, all antiquities found in the country are state property. That doesn’t prevent a lucrative illicit trade in ancient artifacts discovered by farmers or organized gangs of grave robbers.
