Parthenon Marbles

British Museum, LONDON

Sculptures surviving from the Parthenon are located in museums in six different countries. The majority of the sculptures are roughly equally divided between Athens and London, while important pieces are also to be found in other major European museums, including the Louvre and the Vatican. Periodically, the question of where the surviving sculptures from the Parthenon should now be displayed becomes a subject of public discussion.
