An extremely rare ancient coin minted in 42 B.C. is to be returned to Greece from a well-known London coin dealer on June 26, Greece's semi-official ANA-MPA reported on Thursday.
The coin bears a portrait of Brutus, one of the notorious conspirators that murdered the ancient Roman general and statesman Julius Caesar.
The silver coin is one of 50 that exist throughout the world and were minted in Philippi, a city in ancient Greece.
There are currently only two held in Greek museums, while the rest are owned by private collectors.
The particular specimen had been sold by Greeks to the London coin dealer for 18,000 pounds (26163 euros), but the Greek culture ministry and the Greek Embassy in London secured its return to Greece, said the report.
