Italy has recovered hundreds of illegally gathered archeological finds from a Belgian collector dating as far back as the sixth century BC and worth €11m (£9.4m), police have said.

The nearly 800 pieces “of exceptional rarity and inestimable value”, including stelae, amphorae and other items, came from clandestine excavations in Puglia in Italy’s south-eastern tip, according to the carabinieri in charge of cultural heritage.

“During the course of the search, a veritable ’archaeological treasure’ was recovered, consisting of hundreds of Apulian figurative ceramic finds and other Daunian stelae.”

Besides stelae, the collection includes vases painted with red figures, amphorae, black glazed ceramics, and numerous terracotta figurines. The pieces date back to between the sixth and third centuries BC.

How about they give back all the **** the stole from all over the world now? 

This. Like Moctezuma's Penacho that is in Austria and the government refuses to turn it back to its country of origin: Mexico.
