26 November 2008



An icon stolen from a Greek monastery in 1978 has been returned to its owners. The icon, produced in the 14th century, has been valued at £1 million. The thieves cut the icon, which depicts the deposition, into six pieces to smuggle it out of the country. The High Court in London ruled that the icon, once it has been restored, must return to St John the Baptist’s monastery in Serres
