Antiquity honesty

Re "The return of antiquities a blow to Getty," Aug. 2

While the return of antiquities is still in the news, as evidenced by the Getty's noble gesture to the Italian request, it would be proper and correct if the British Museum took note and returned the Parthenon marbles to Greece. Now that the Greeks are unveiling their new Acropolis Museum, it would be the perfect time for Britain to return these most significant pieces, among the greatest symbols of democracy.

Now that the Getty has come clean and agreed to return 40 pieces from its collection to Italy, will the Italians return the majority of that collection to Greece?
