An astonishing case of illicit antiquity dealings, involving an incalculable cultural value head of a Kouros (ancient Greek sculpture), was uncovered by the Attica Security Directorate’s Department of Cultural Heritage and Antiquities.

The ancient item of limestone, measures 40 cm including the neck section, has a braided hairdo and is derived from an ancient provincial laboratory, which makes it of unique archaeological value.

Greek authorities arrested a local man in Nemea Corinth, who possessed the artifact illegally and was reportedly trying to sell it for 500,000 euros. He reportedly had hidden it among rocks on the side of a rural road of a land plot.
