The Hellenic Police arrested the 49-year old owner of the home and confiscated among other items four vessels, the base of a marble pillar, a star-formed ornament, two stone mortars, a bracelet, part of metal safety pin, and a copper spearhead, all dating back to the Classical and Roman eras.

The investigation continues in order to determine when and how the priceless artifacts were obtained. The antiquities were immediately transferred to the Grevena Antiquities Ephorate.
