International Scientific Conference in Ancient Olympia

ancient-olympia-columnsAncient Olympia, the site of the ancient Olympic Games in the Western Peloponnese, has been appointed for symbolic reasons as venue of the International Scientific Conference in October 2013.
The Conference, which will take place in the Olympia Conference Center, is devoted to cultural property  repatriation to their countries of origin and to the eradication of illicit antiquities trafficking.
Internationally recognized scientists and experts will participate in the Conference.
“This is about an experts’ conference that took place in 2011 and 2012 in South Korea, a country that has suffered great losses in the domain of cultural heritage,” as noted by Vlazaki-Andreadaki Maria, Director General of Antiquities of the General Secretariat for Culture during the meeting of the Central Archeological Council on April 30.
Part of the expenditures will be covered by the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation.
