A cache of ancient artifacts was discovered in a couple's residence in eastern Attica prefecture on Wednesday during a police probe, leading to the arrest of a 67-year-old woman.

The suspect's 71-year-old husband is wanted by police on antiquities smuggling charges.

Police raided the residence on Wednesday night after reportedly acting on a tip-off. A total of 26 ancient artifacts dated to various period of antiquity were found. Several weapons were also confiscated.
