ATHENS, Jan 2 (AFP) – Greek authorities have arrested three Iranians attempting to sell three ancient Greek coins for 17,000 euros (20,000 dollars), the finance ministry inspection squad said on Monday.

The inspectors who conducted the arrest also confiscated pictures of hundreds of similar coins from the detainees, a ministry statement said.
