Spain police seize 1,900-year-old Roman bust amid trove of archaeological treasures

The other seized objects comprised rare Greek, Roman and Ibero-Roman sculptures, architectural fragments, ceramics and coins, police said, adding that they had been transferred to the Cordoba Archaeological Museum.

The couple face potential charges of illegal trafficking in archaeological objects, smuggling and receiving stolen goods.

The seizure in Baena was part of a Spanish-led international investigation, dubbed PANDORA VII, that has secured the recovery of 1,079 art objects and the arrest of 19 people with the support of European police agency Europol and Interpol.
