The Parthenon Marbles or also known as the Elgin Marbles are still a very difficult issue in the relationship between the English and the Greeks. Thomas Bruce, 7th Earl of Elgin was British ambassador during the Ottoman Empire times. Between 1799–1803 he obtained permission from the Ottoman authorities to remove pieces from the Acropolis. The Marbles were transported by sea to Britain and are now in the British Museum.

There is a place reserved for them in the nearby, new Acropolis Museum.
