New fragments from the Parthenon at the Acropolis Museum

It is with great joy that the Acropolis Museum received ten fragments of the sculptural decoration of the Parthenon, which were granted by the National Archaeological Museum, following a request made by the Acropolis Museum General Director, Prof. Nik. Stambolidis.

These fragments, which were kept until now in the storerooms of the National Archaeological Museum, have a maximum height of 32 centimeters, and were located, identified and documented by the late archaeologist and researcher of ancient Greek sculpture, Giorgos Despinis.

The fragments come from the frieze, the metopes and the pediments of the Parthenon.
