Row over plans to move Greek antiquities from construction site | Inquirer Lifestyle
People are at work the Greek Archaeological Service rescue excavations of the underground railway network at the Venizelos metro station on May 22, 2014, in Thessaloniki. - A row has broken out in Greece's second largest city of Thessaloniki over the fate of an ancient city district unearthed during work on a new subway, and described by archaeologists as priceless. Greece's recently-elected conservative government has decided to remove the antiquities and relocate them to a museum that will be constructed at a later stage, reversing earlier plans by a previous leftist administration to display the antiquities in situ, at the stations where they were found.
