Greece Requests the Return of the Victory of Samothrace

Si

Alongside the long sought after Elgin marbles, Greece has recently displayed their desire for the return of the famous Victory of Samothrace, which was taken from the Greek island in 19th century and now resides, prominently placed in the Louvre Museum. While the British and French claim that the Elgin Marbles and that the Victory of Samothrace are no longer Greek, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Akis Gerondopoulos, believes that their long ago stolen treasures should be returned to their places of origins thus accentuating Greece's rich cultural heritage.
