Greek police have had a series of busts recently, revealing a large amount of antiquities trafficking. Two suspects were arrested with a rare Neolithic woman figurine. Another suspect was arrested with two Hellenistic statues, one of the goddess Aphrodite and the other of a woman. Another suspect was a large scale looter that worked over a broad region. Over 2,000 ancient coins were confiscated together with 800 rare Neolithic artifacts including a figurine of a house and several ritual objects.
The Greek police continue to be at the forefront of preventing antiquities theft and are adding considerably to our knowledge of trafficking networks.
More news to follow soon.
