Letter to the Editor: What’s in a Name… The Parthenon Sculptures

March 11, 2022

To the Staff:

I would like to suggest that the Staff at The National Herald change a word. The Greek Embassy uses: Parthenon Sculptures… and TNH uses Parthenon Marbles. The word SCULPTURES is so much better and tells the story to those who know NO Greek history. Marbles was widely used for years… and is outdated. I would appreciate if you follow the lead of The Greek Embassy. Thank you.
