Stolen Rare Book Found Abandoned on Stairway of University

    A valuable rare book that disappeared from Thessaloniki’s Aristotle University (AUTH) eight years ago has surfaced.
    The volume, entitled “Geschichte und Denkmaeler des byzantinischen Emails”, written by N. Kondakow, had been stolen from the History and Archaeology faculty in 2003. It was found last Monday abandoned on the 7th floor stairway in the university administration building.
    The leather bound book is one of 200 numbered copies printed in Frankfurt in 1892 and refers to the history and monuments of Byzantine enamels.
