33 Ancient Coins Seized from Smugglers

 

15 August 2005

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Custom officials in Tehran have come across 33 ancient coins belonging to the Parthian, Sasanid and post Sasanid eras while examining nine parcels destined for overseas.

 

A custom official told Fars news agency that the owners of parcels had used fake sender address on the back of the packets.

 

However, experienced custom officers managed to identify the suspicious parcels and prevent their dispatch abroad. Meanwhile, cultural heritage experts were invited to give their opinion on the artifacts.

 

Experts said that the export of ancient relics including coins are banned by the Iranian law.
