The Greek government has announced that it is prepared to part with some of its greatest treasures to “fill the void” at the British Museum if the Parthenon Marbles return to Athens, Greece.
In an interview with The Guardian, Greece’s Culture Minister Lina Mendoni promised the British Museum’s revered Greek galleries would never go empty.
“Our position is clear,” she said. “Should the sculptures be reunited in Athens, Greece is prepared to organise rotating exhibitions of important antiquities that would fill the void.”
She also warned that “any agreement and all its particulars, would have to be in accordance with the Greek law on cultural heritage.”
