Two men arrested for smuggling in Larissa, Greece.

Two men were arrested in Larissa for smuggling antiquities. The 70-year old owner of an enterprise specialised in the construction of metallic builidngs and a 58-year old head-worker in the same buissness, situated on the 60th km of the Larissa-Kozani highway were arrested, charged with breaking the law on protection of antiquities.

While searching the building police found and confiscated a portion of a grave stele, part of an ionian capital, part of a demi-column, a small corinthian capital, all dating to the 4th-4rd centuries, and three portions of smoking pipes of the othoman period.
