Tourists Arrested Carrying Ancient Coins on Istambul Bus

Two Moldovans were on a minibus being searched by police officers in Istanbul’s Kadıköy neighborhood. A nylon bag belonging to them was searched and found to contain 103 historic coins found from the Byzantine and Roman eras. The coins were seized and the two are now in custody for questioning. When asked where they had found the coins, the suspects said that they had taken them from two people they did not know.

The comments include a number of stories of (mainly US citizens) who had been offered coins for sale while touring in Turkey.
