Thessaloniki’s Archaeological Museum

A visitor to Thessaloniki’s Archaeological Museum is pictured admiring a golden wreath, dating to the 4th century BC, which was returned to Greece yesterday. The wreath was returned by the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles which acquired the artifact after it was illegally excavated in northern Greece. The Getty Museum bought the wreath in 1993 when Marion True was its curator. True faces trial in Athens next week on charges of antiquities smuggling.
