A Roman slab was found in a garden in England. How it got there is a 'complete mystery'

Nn ancient Roman marble slab, used for nearly a decade as a horse mounting block before its origins were revealed, is at the center of a mystery as experts scramble to find out how it ended up in the garden of a bungalow in England.

The intricate slab features a Greek inscription that gives a clue to its origins, and has been dated back to the second century AD.

The slab is set to be sold in February by Woolley and Wallis, with a pre-sale estimate of up to £15,000.

After Hiatus, Greece Bringing Back Click-and-Collect Store Purchases

A click-and-collect scheme to let shoppers order online and make reservations to get their goods at stores, in limited queues up to nine people, will start again in Greece on Jan. 11 after being suspended for tighter health measures.

The week-long closing of the method came as the New Democracy government tried to contain a still surging second wave of COVID-19 that jumped during a more lenient second lockdown that began Nov. 7 and kept being extended after failing.
