Greg B BS: Stolen Greek art (175* d) RE: BS: Stolen Greek art 24 Nov 11


Another way of looking at it is that Lord Elgin (no doubt due to having a classical education) held more value for artifacts of the Ancient Greeks than the contemporary Greeks of his time.

That is evidenced by the willingness of those Greeks to sell their cultural heritage to a foreigner.

There's a PBS special on the work being done to restore the Acropolis and the Parthenon. Perhaps when that work is completed, something should be worked out.

On the other hand, this may not be the time for Greece to be burdened with further preservation obligations.
