Italy, Coins and eBay

The Italian press has reported that 1250 Greek, Roman and Late Antique coins as well as 86 fibulae and rings have been recovered from Vibo Valentia in Calabira ("Traffico reperti archeologici su e-Bay, migliaia sequestri", ANSA July 21, 2010). The objects were reportedly being offered through eBay.

This is a timely reminder that recently-surfaced archaeological objects, including coins, are continuing to surface on the market.
