A beautiful museum and a tribute to the Hellenic culture.

To me, no building in Europe or Asia minor, even the world is on par with the Parthenon. No building stands for the values it does and no building has seen conflict like this one.
It is a tribute to humanity. And this museum honours that.

However this museum is not needed to present a case of restitution.
The British museum is holding stolen property, its owners want it back and it deserves to go back to be reunited with the remaining fragments.

It's that simple.

Furthermore, its removal was illegal and its remover was a vandal (he desecrated the marbles he stole). Mr. Elgin was no admirer of art as no admirer would of committed the atrocities to art that he has.

The British museum cannot mount a case without tacitly supporting irredentism, colonialism, slavery, conquest - as to claim the Ottomans as owners at the time is to recognise the 'legitimacy' of the aforementioned.
