A fragment of the Parthenon Marbles returned from Italy to its home at the Acropolis Museum on Monday and was welcomed in a special ceremony attended by PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

The symbolic and practical gesture made by the autonomous region of Sicily to hand over the “Fagan fragment” raises expectations of the repatriation of all Parthenon Marbles.

Officials said that the fragment has returned to Greece, on loan from the Antonino Salinas Regional Archaeological Museum in Palermo, with a view of permanent repatriation.
