Not only the British Museum is not returning to Greece this precious cultural treasure - alleged to be looted by Lord Elgin, in any case carried away from Greece under legally disputed permission - but also, as per its tag, Greece is being reproved of leaving the other 2 statues “weathered” for 2 centuries.
