A visitor admires works by classical sculptor Praxiteles at Athens’s National Archaeological Museum yesterday. Some 100 Neolithic artifacts were unveiled at the museum yesterday. Dating back over 8,000 years, the artifacts had been stolen from a private collection in Larissa, central Greece, in 1985 and seized by police in Munich one year later. The case was deferred until August this year when a Munich court ordered the return of the artifacts. Officials blamed ‘state inefficiency’ for the delay.
