Antiquities Market update Greek Police Seize Illegal antiquities
Police confiscated more than 100 ancient vases and marble fragments during a raid on an Aegean Sea island restaurant, authorities said Thursday.

Officers from the special antiquities squad seized dozens of complete pots - including 10 large vases used to transport wine and food - as well as a rare bronze double ax and four marble column bases, police said.

The raid took place on Wednesday on the small island of Koufonissi.

Not much else there.
