ATHENS – Greek archaeologists were looking over a collection of gold jewelry discovered by police in a hidden compartment in the ceiling of a home in Imathia, northern Greece, trying to determine their value.

The 59-year-old resident of the home, which was raided by officers acting on a tip-off, has been placed under arrest and may face charges of illegal possession of antiquities if the items are authenticated, the Greek Police said.

Among the items found stuffed in the compartment in foam ceiling tile were gold necklaces and earrings, as well as leaf-shaped fragments that resemble the ornamentation used in Alexander-era crowns and ceremonial wreaths. Police said they also discovered five small bundles containing semi-precious stones.
