Here is more evidence the Greek archaeological community is seriously out of touch. See http://www.ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=107369
Expressions of international solidarity will do little to make up for slashed budgets, and fantasies about artifacts being stolen to order by wealthy Western collectors can't justify lax security.
The Greek cultural establishment needs to cope with the economic meltdown facing the country, and stop making excuses.
The first step to salvation is for Greece to end overregulation of everything old, and instead sell off duplicate artifacts. That will free up funds to help protect Greece's true cultural treasures.
