Τhe Parthenon Sculptures (3/2022)


The Hellenic Post Office offers a Commemorative Series of Stamps in the service of national cultural diplomacy, with the ambition to travel around the world the request of the reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures. In this context, the four stamps depict selected parts of the dismembered Parthenon Sculptures, side by side with the clear expression of the request for their reunification: Reunite Parthenon.

In order to maximize the dissemination of this message, ELTA designed, for the first time, a special, bilingual microsite with all the information about the stamps and these philatelic products, as well as the possibility of purchase: www.parthenonstamps.gr
