Authorities said that he had packed 1,055 coins in seven plastic water bottles wrapped in tape and placed at the bottom of his bag.
The suspect told police that the coins – that date from different periods of Greek history – were delivered at his home in Turkey by unknown persons and that he was offered 1,400 euros to transport them to Germany.


The coins have been handed over to experts to asses their provenance.
