Seven men were sentenced by a Greek court on Wednesday in connection with the museum robbery by armed men in Olympia in February 2012.
A 41-year-old man believed to be the brains behind the operation, a 50-year-old former contractor who arranged the sale and a 37-year-old man were all handed seven-year sentences [...] Two other Greeks were sentenced to six years while two Bulgarians were handed lighter sentences.
Nearly 80 archaeological artefacts were stolen. In November 2012, three suspects trying to sell a Bronze Age gold ring in a hotel in the western city of Patras wrer arrested. They turned out to have connections with the Olympia theft and police subsequently recovered the stolen items.
