Costa del Sol News - - FRONT PAGE -

An­cient coins, rings and vases were just part of a haul of 748 Ro­man, Greek and Ibe­rian pieces re­cov­ered by the Guardia Civil this week. Six peo­ple, who plun­dered arche­o­log­i­cal sites, have been ar­rested in the prov­ince of Jaén af­ter a six-month op­er­a­tion. Other items re­trieved were two Ro­man lead plates, dated be­tween 1BC and 3BC and an­other plate from the same era which could be one of the first to be dis­cov­ered with Ibe­rian writ­ing on it.
