ELgin Marbles III

Greek culture minister Nikos Xydakis has told Mega TV that Athens will not take the British Museum to court over the marble frieze sculpture from the Parthenon, known as the Elgin Marbles. This rejects legal advice from lawyer Amal Alamuddin Clooney - Mrs George Clooney - but seems sensible. The case would cost a fortune and Xydakis admits the outcome would be "uncertain" (CLICK). The Elgin Marbles are currently on display in the British Museum's exhibition Defining Beauty: the body in ancient Greek art (CLICK).
