Greece is planning to ban chewing gum and high heels at parts of the Acropolis, saying that they are causing irreparable damage.
The archaeologists claim the more than 350,000 annual visitors to the Odeon of Herod Atticus are now detrimental to the venue.
Two years ago, cleaning crews reportedly removed 27 kilos of chewing gum from the theatre’s marble seats. The situation is thought to be the same at the other ancient Epidavos theatre in the Peloponnese.
