A retired gardener who dug up a 2,000-year-old marble bust of Alexander the Great at a country estate has sold it for almost £400,000.
The heavy sculpture had been buried decades ago within the grounds of Sutton Place, a Tudor mansion that belonged to Jean Paul Getty in the 1960s and '70s.
The American oil magnate sold the Surrey mansion to renowned art collector Stanley Seeger who set about transforming the gardens.
The employee unearthed the 15ins tall bust during the work in about 1984.
