Eagle-eyed IADAA member Costas Paraskevaides has been doing his bit for the restitution cause in this case of an ancient Cypriot vase. Pictured here, the 6cm high Bichrome ware vase dates from 750-600 BC and had been looted and illegally exported following the Turkish invasion of the island in 1974.

Costas, who owns Art Ancient, based in Chelsea, spotted the vase on the London market and organised its repatriation through the Cypriot High Commission and the Metropolitan Police.

The story was covered by the Cyprus Mail.
