WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12), Congressman Gus Bilirakis (FL-12), and Congressman Donald Payne, Jr. (NJ-10), leaders of the Congressional Caucus on Hellenic Issues, today requested that the Committee on Foreign Affairs hold a hearing on their House Resolution expressing the sense of the Congress that the Parthenon Marbles should be returned to Greece.

In their request, the Members write to Chairman Ed Royce and Ranking Member Eliot Engel, “These sculptures are ancient symbols of Greek heritage, culture, and art. Greeks and visitors should be able to experience and enjoy the entire frieze in Greece in the way it was intended and originally designed around the Temple of Athena.”
