Greece commenting on the return of the Steinhardt lekythos

Source: Manhattan District Attorney's Office
The Hellenic Ministry of Culture has issued a press release noting its interest in the Attic white ground lekythos (αττικής λευκής ληκύθου) seized from the collection of Michael Steinhardt last week ("Ενημέρωση σχετικά με την κατάσχεση ελληνικών αρχαιοτήτων στην Νέα Υόρκη", January 7, 2018). Lekythoi such as this are normally found in cemeteries of Attica. 

It appears from the earlier report that the lekythos was among a group of antiquities acquired from William and Lynda Beierwaltes, who are known to have purchased items from Robin Symes.
