Greece Britain Parthenon Marbles

Greece Britain Parthenon Marbles

A passenger walks past copies of some of the Parthenon Sculptures displayed in the British Museum, at the Acropolis Metro station in Athens , Thursday, June 11, 2009. Greece's Culture Minister Antonia Samaras says he has rejected an offer from the British Museum to return a section of the Parthenon Marbles on a three-month loan. Samaras says the deal would have meant renouncing any Greek claim to the 2,500-year-old sculptures, which have been in London for nearly two centuries. Greece hopes one day to display the British Museum's Parthenon collection beside its own surviving sections in a new museum that will open next weekend. (AP Photo/Thanassis Stavrakis)
