    [01] More stolen treasures found

    Nicosia Oct 19 (CNA) -- More stolen Cypriot church art treasures have been discovered by German police in the basement of the building where a Turkish archaeologist resides.

    Some twenty boxes and cases containing icons, frescoes, ancient pottery, statues and coins were discovered in the basement of the residence of 60- year old Turkish archaeologist, Dikmen Aydin.

    After a tip-off from the Cyprus Security Services, German police had discovered fourteen cases hidden in Aydin's flat.

    The contents of the first hoard have now been entered into a 24-page catalogue.

    Since the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus, scores of priceless artifacts have been located in overseas markets. Some were retrieved through legal means, others were bought.
