Greeks are sitting on nearly 250 million euros in old drachma six years after the currency was phased out to be replaced by the euro, the Bank of Greece said on Tuesday.

85 billion drachmas, or 249.5 million euros, remain to be exchanged.

Around 680 million drachmas have been redeemed since January and the option remains open until March 1, 2012, he added.
"People should start checking their mattresses," the Bank's head cashier.

At the current exchange rates the dust and cobwebs are worth more than the Euro anyday.

Checked under bed - no Drachma's, but have discovered old urn (used as chamber pot) my visiting friend Prof. Al Codol says it is a very valuble
artifact - maybe from the Minoan period.
