Dozens of ancient coins, oil lamps, jewellery and Jewish ritual objects were found in a police raid on a home in the village of Beit Ula, Northwest of Hebron, Israel.
During the raid the homeowner, a Palestinian man, was detained. Experts state that the antiquities were from a broad cross-section of historical periods, from Hellenistic to Roman and Byzantine times, and on into the Middle Ages. According to the official the stolen antiquities have the value of thousands of dollars.
