Police found ancient Armenian king tombstone

Anti-smuggling police seized a 2,000-year-old tombstone belonging to an ancient Armenian king Antiacho of Commagene in Turkey's northwestern Balıkesir province on Tuesday. Reported Sabah.

Acting upon a tipoff, security forces tracked two cars passing through Edremit town headed toward western Çanakkale province. After searching the cars, police found and confiscated a tombstone reading "the final resting place of the Commagene Kingdom's leader Antiacho" in Ancient Roman script. The smugglers were planning to sell the invaluable artifact for TL 2 million ($281,000), reports said.

Four suspects were detained during the operation and police launched an extensive investigation into the incident.
