A small step towards the Reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures
The Museum of Ancient History of Heidelberg intends to return to fragments of the Erechtheion, the ancient Greek temple on the north side of the Acropolis, to Greece. The announcement was made by the Culture ministry on Friday.
The decision for the return was expressed by Dr. Reinhard Stupperich, during his meeting on Thursday with Greek Culture Minister Aristides Baltas. The meeting was also attended by the head of the International Association for the Reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures, David Hill and the Chair of Marbles Reunited, Andrew George.
