Published on March 29th, 2012 | by Admin2
Greek police recovered an ancient statue that was illegally excavated and hidden in a goat pen near Athens, and arrested the goat herder and another man who were allegedly trying to sell the work for €500,000 ($667,000).
The marble statue of a young woman dates to about 520 BC and belongs to the kore type, a police statement said Wednesday. Police photos showed the 1.2-metre work to be largely intact, lacking the left forearm and plinth.
