Nobel Foundation returns ancient gold ring to Greece

Greece's culture ministry on Friday said  that the Nobel Foundation in Sweden had returned an ancient gold ring stolen from  the island of Rhodes during World War II.The Mycenaean signet ring, marked with a pair of winged sphinxes, was  formally returned at a ceremony in Stockholm on Thursday, the ministry said.
It had been found in Rhodes during a 1927 excavation at a Mycenaean necropolis by the Italian School of Archaeology, at a time when the island was under Italian control.
The ring was stolen during World War II from the local archaeological museum alongside other antiquities that have yet to be recovered, the ministry said  in a statement.
It eventually surfaced in the United States, purchased by Hungarian Nobel prize-winning biophysicist Georg von B‚k‚sy, whose collection was acquired by the Nobel Foundation following his death in 1972.
