The Deflowering of the Parthenon: A
Legal and Moral Analysis on why the
Elgin Marbles must be Returned to
Greece
Michael J. Reppas 11*
Give back the Elgin marbles; let them lie
Unsullied, pure beneath an Attic sky.
The smoky fingers of our northern clime
More ruin work than all the ancient time.
How oft' the roar of the Pirean Sea
Through column'd hall and dusky temple stealing
Hath struck these marble ears, that now must flee
The whirling hum of London, noonward reeling.
AhI let them hear again the sounds that float
Around Athena's shrine on morning's breeze -
The lowing ox, the bell of clinking goat
And drowsy drone offar Hymettus' breeze.
Give back the marbles, let them vigil keep
Where art still lies, o'er Pheidias' tomb, asleep.'
