A unique specimen…

A unique specimen of a Byzantine bronze vessel only known to archaeologists from wall paintings and a 3,300-year-old Mycenaean stirrup-jar are displayed at the Museum of Ancient Corinth yesterday, after being returned from Germany following a long legal battle. The pieces are part of a group that included another 11 Mycenaean pots and figurines illegally excavated from the area of Athikia, east of Corinth, and smuggled to Germany. The artifacts, seized in 1999 outside Munich, will be exhibited at Corinth.
