In 1896, Olympic marathon champion Spyros Louis was awarded a 6th century B.C. relic, but it disappeared a few decades later.Greek City Times . In 1986, fragments of the pottery, which features the images of two runners, made its way to Germany’s University of Münster as part of a private German collection the university purchased that year. Then in 2014, pieces of the Skyphos were discovered and reassembled at the University of Münster. Five years later, the reconstructed artifact was returned to its rightful home at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. While the University of Münster spokespeople stated that the school purchased the Skyphos lawfully, they agreed to return the relic to Greece last month, the Greek City Times reported.
