British Museum suggests a ‘sharing arrangement’ of Parthenon sculptures with Greece

The Parthenon sculptures Greece is demanding back from Britain could be shared by the two countries, British Museum Chairman George Osborne told LBC, a digital news service registered in the UK, on Wednesday.

The set of sculptures, a major part of the 5th-century Parthenon’s decoration, have been a source of friction between Greek governments and the Museum, where they are shown, and Osborne’s statements to LBC were the first to hint at an opening to a compromise. As he told LBC, he would support an arrangement where the pieces were shared between London and Athens.
