Criminologists have apprehended a man near Aytos in Southeastern Bulgaria as he was preparing to smuggle more than 350 ancient coins, dating to the Roman, Ancient Greek and Byzantine period, out of the country.

The estimated value of the deal is very high. The police operation prevented the irretrievable loss of artifacts which are part of the cultural heritage of Bulgaria.
