Getty returns artefacts to Greece

For those keeping up with ongoing international cases where ownership of antiquities is in dispute, the Getty has agreed to return two important pieces to Greece: "After months of intense scrutiny of its collection of Greek and Roman antiquities, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles said Monday that it had agreed to relinquish ownership to two of four important ancient works that the government of Greece says were illegally removed from Greek soil."
Museums and governments worldwide are watching to see the outcome of these cases, with a view to determining their own chances of repatriating artefacts which have been aquired from illegitimate sources.
