Antiquities 'small change' intercepted in mail

More than 5,000 antique coins, some dating back thousands of years, have been intercepted in the mail on their way out of Israel, the Israel Antiquities Authority said Monday. Two of the suspects in the antiquities theft were authorized Jerusalem antiquities dealers. The array of historic coins date back to the Hellenistic, Second Temple, Roman, Byzantine, and Mameluk Periods.
