Five Greek men aged between 24 and 69 were taken into custody in Igoumenitsa, northwestern Greece, on Thursday night on suspicion of violating antiquity laws.

The men were arrested in the area of Ambelonas after being found in possession of equipment used for detecting metals.
Police said that during questioning the men said they were looking for ancient coins and gold sovereigns.

The use of metal detectors on private property is generally allowed, however on state land it is not - beaches etc. The catch here is that if you find material e.g., ancient coins etc, you can face criminal charges for possession of antiquities and worse still possession for trade. There were 2 cases last year involving metal detecting and both (Greek) ended with fines and suspended prison sentences.

Metal detecting is a no, no. It is illegal. Comes under Hellenic Army bylaws.

Hi I just wanted to know if metal detecting is allowed
on the beaches on the island, and do you have to have
a permit, and where i can obtain one. Many thanks.
