Elef­sina theft.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

An­cient ar­ti­facts have been stolen from the Ar­chae­o­log­i­cal Site of Eleu­sis west of Athens, the Cul­ture Min­istry said on Fri­day. The theft took place on the night of April 15, ac­cord­ing to the min­istry. No fur­ther de­tails were given on the or­ders of the po­lice. The site is one of Greece’s most sig­nif­i­cant ar­chae­o­log­i­cal ar­eas, hous­ing the re­mains of the Tem­ple of Deme­ter, where the Eleusinian Mys­ter­ies were held, and mu­seum that dis­plays ob­jects from as far back as the 5th cen­tury.
