From Budapest to Athens: More Antiquities Returning to Greece

The Hellenic Ministry of Culture announced yesterday (to coincide with the opening of the Athens photographic exhibition, "The Greeks in Hungary") that some 22 antiquities, presently on display in the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest, would be returning to Greece.

Mihalis Liapis talked about the "contest" for the return of antiquities ("αγώνας για την επιστροφή αρχαιοτήτων") which he considers to be the "rescue of world cultural heritage". He considers this issue to be the lead item on the agenda for the Ministry of Culture.

A fragment from the Parthenon frieze returns to Athens from the Museo Archeologico Regionale Antonio Salinas of Palermo. The piece will also be exhibited at the Nostoi Exhibition in the New Acropolis Museum
