In this undated handout photo released by Greek Police on Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2016, a fragmentary metal artifact seized from a large antiquities-smuggling gang is displayed in the southwestern Greek city of Patras. Police said Wednesday the gang allegedly exported thousands of Greek antiquities for sale through conniving European auction houses, or directly to private buyers. Spokesman for the Patras police directorate, which headed the nationwide 14-month investigation, Haralambos Sfetsos said more than 50 people are thought to be involved in the criminal organization.
