A 46-year-old man was arrested in the area of Alimos, an Athens suburb, on Tuesday for illegal possession and transportation of antiquities of very high value, police’s cultural heritage division said.

The prosecutor charged him with violating laws for protection of antiquities and cultural heritage.

Police said the suspect had obtained an extremely rare Cycladic figurine and an ancient inscription and was trying to sell them for one million euros. They identified the man after many months of investigation and finally arrested him at a parking lot near the Alimos marina.
