Getty to return more antiquities to Greece
Greece: J. Paul Getty Museum to return 2,400-year-old Greek marbles
By The Associated Press

ATHENS, Greece (AP) ' Greece's culture ministry says the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles has agreed to return three more ancient marble artifacts from its collections to Greece.

A ministry statement lists the 5th century B.C. works as two pieces of a relief sculpture from a grave marker ' a third fragment of which is in a Greek museum ' and a slab with an inscription related to a religious festival.

Thursday's statement said the return is linked with a new cooperation agreement with the museum, which will include exchanges of artifacts and a commitment to prevent the illegal trade in antiquities. It said Athens is discussing the loan of an ancient Greek inscription to the Getty.



In recent years, the Getty has repatriated to Athens another four significant ancient Greek works, including an elaborate gold wreath that was allegedly illegally excavated in northern Greece.
