Greece to allow advertising on ancient monuments

Greece’s culture ministry has annuonced that it will be offering up some archaeological sites for advertising opportunities.

The ministry says the move is a common-sense way of helping “facilitate” access to the country’s ancient Greek ruins, and money generated would fund the upkeep and monitoring of sites. The first site to be opened would be the Acropolis.

Archaeologists, however, have for decades slammed such an initiative as sacrilege.

One thought on “Greece to allow advertising on ancient monuments

  1. Don’t deface our history! If a company or organization wishes to support our legacy, a plaque of sponsorship is adequate, but don’t mess with our artifacts!
