ekathimerini.com | Illicit antiquities trade continues to thrive in Greece

This article highlights the issues of thefts, which are a problem around the world, not just Greece. It's why I'm working on creating a publicly accessible database of photos of looted archaeological artefacts. Looting of archaeological sites and thefts from museums are an ongoing problem, and need to be dealt with before claims of restitution whether of the Elgin Marbles, Rosetta Stone or Nefretiti.

I do not moderate comments, but I remove spam, overt self-promotion ("read [link] my much better post on this") and what I consider hate speech (racism, homophobia etc).
