Two arrested with burglary tools, antiquities

Authorities on Monday reported the arrest of two foreign nationals caught with burglary tools and a large number of undeclared antiquities in their car.
The two were arrested in the coastal city of Nafplio and had in their possession 26 Byzantine and Medieval-era coins, 11 coins of unknown origin, two Byzantine-era copper rings, two broken copper crosses, 10 copper clothing accessories, three sections of iron knives, one piece of silver jewellery, a brass miniature key, two metal fragments, a circular plate depicting the Virgin Mary and Jesus and two shells from a flash gun.
The antiquities were examined by the local archaeological service, which found that they qualify for protection under the antiquities act.

The two men will be led before a public prosecutor and the Nafplio police are continuing their inquiry into the case.
