Italian officials said their country would hand over to Greece some 80 ancient coins that were seized by Italian authorities six years ago.

The handover of the silver and bronze coins was due to take place at the sidelines of a meeting of European Union culture ministers in Turin.

The coins date to between the 5th and 2nd Centuries B.C. and are from Macedonia, specifically Halkidiki. Italy joins a growing list of countries and museums returning Greek antiquities and treasures, except for the British Museum, which continues to keep the Parthenon Marbles stolen 200 years ago.
