"We are not yet aware of the full importance of this discovery, but in 20 years' time we will still be talking about this vase," said Jose Luis Simon, an expert from the cultural heritage service of the Ministry of Culture.

Maybe I am missing something, but how do they know it was stolen from a arch. dig? Maybe the man found it himself, well out and about. Akin to how we find arrow heads and pottery shards and the such out in North America. The article was kind of vague. :S

Nice find, The L.

To me it looks like either a  scene from Jason and the Argonauts or from the Ulysses.


In the land of the Mysians, one of the sailors, Hylas, went in search of water and was abducted by the nymphs of a spring. Herakles and Polyphemos (Polyphemus) refused to leave the island without Hylas and the Argo sailed without them. The fate of the Argonauts began to change and they suffered their first casualties ... Idmon was the first to die ... he died from wounds inflicted by a monstrous, white-tusked boar.

Odysseus’ name means “trouble” in Greek, referring to both the giving and receiving of trouble—as is often the case in his wanderings. An early example of this is the boar hunt that gave Odysseus the scar by which Eurycleia recognizes him; Odysseus is injured by the boar and responds by killing it.

Notice the wave-like symbols.

EDIT:

By 1000 BC Greek and Phoenician traders had begun to visit the eastern coast of Spain, establishing small trading ports and introducing the native Iberian tribes to the alphabet, iron and the pottery wheel. By the 3rd century BC, the rival armies of Carthage and Rome began to invade and fight for control of the Iberian Peninsula. The Carthaginian general Hamilcar Barca established the fortified settlement of Akra Leuka (Greek: Ἄκρα Λευκή, meaning "White Mountain" or "White Point"), where Alicante stands today.

I am glad they found it before it disappeared to a private collector forever. Those kind of things belong in museums on display for all to see.

I just find article. You find possible explaination.
Waves and boar is first thing what one notice when look at it.
Odysseus or Jason seems possible.

But as Jose said:
"We are not yet aware of the full importance of this discovery, but in 20 years' time we will still be talking about this vase,"

Im sure we will mention this vase on UM again.
