Ancient archaeological collection returned to Italy from Belgium with help of Eurojust

An ancient and rare collection of almost 800 Apulian archaeological artefacts and pieces of pottery has been returned to Italy from Belgium, with crucial support from Eurojust. The archaeological goods illegally obtained by a Belgian art collector had been excavated without authorisation in Puglia, Italy. The collection dates as far back as 600 B.C. and includes a rare Daunian stele, or funerary artefact.
