After suggestions that Greece would push the Marbles onto the EU’s post-Brexit agenda, it’s unclear whether this is still being run up the flagpole:

That’s probably a sensible priority for Greece, and for trade negotiations: linking the Marbles dispute to post-Brexit negotiations would make it look overtly geopolitical more than ethical/legal, fostering a Cuno-esque interpretation of Greek motivations. And as a geopolitical dispute it’s overshadowed by Gibraltar (and the Chagos Islanders’ day in court showed that inviting UN member states to line up to take a free swing at Britain has dubious concrete effectiveness). But what will they ask for, given that the UNESCO/UNIDROIT Conventions have nothing particularly to do with EU law...?
