LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM - JULY 15: An official at the Turkish embassy with one of the Greco-Roman marbles after it was handed back to the Turkish Ambassador Ozdem Sanberk, at a reception at the Turkish embassy 15 July, The sculptures where found in the wreckage of a ship that sank in the English Channel a century ago. Seven marble sculptures dating back to the second century were being returned after Turkey laid claim to the haul two years ago. The treasure, worth an estimated 25,000 pounds (41,000 dollars) but priceless in archaeological terms, includes a bust of the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius and a head of Venus. The treasure was discovered in 1994 by four divers from Folkestone, on the south coast of England. It was found in the wreckage of the steamer Castor, which sank off nearby Dungeness on July 28, 1894, while carrying Turkish antiquities to the Netherlands. The return of the treasure comes as the dispute between Britain and Greece over the so-called Elgin marbles continues. These are the friezes of the Parthenon currently held in the British Museum in London. (Photo credit should read JOHNNY EGGITT/AFP via Getty Images)
