Two men, 25 and 26, were remanded on Saturday for six days after Byzantine era coins and ancient artefacts were found in their possession.

The two men were arrested on Friday evening after passersby called the police when the two started arguing and hitting each other in Neapolis in Limassol.

Police found Byzantine era coins and other ancient artefacts in their possession for which they did not provide satisfactory explanations.

The items found on them were delivered to the antiquities department. Five of them were recognised as antiquities, among them a Byzantine medieval era buckle and a number of Byzantine coins, the possession of which is illegal.
