A 47-year-old man was ar­rested yes­ter­day in Gian­nitsa, north­ern Greece, on sus­pi­cion of il­le­gally pos­sess­ing an­tiq­ui­ties. The un­named sus­pect was caught af­ter al­legedly try­ing to sell 11 pieces of Ro­man-era fu­ner­ary ste­les. The head of the Thes­sa­loniki Se­cu­rity Po­lice, Nikos Zisi­mopou­los, said that the an­tiq­ui­ties, whose value is not known, were hid­den in the coun­try­side. “We es­ti­mate they are from the 2nd or 3rd cen­tury BC,” added the of­fi­cer, who said the sus­pect claimed he was stor­ing the relics in or­der to hand them over to author­i­ties.
