Deaccessioning in Greece
Greece adheres very strict legislation on deaccessioning and disposal and follows the Latin museological tradition in this sense.
When asked about the (legal) possibilities, the Ministry of Culture answered that the disposal of antiquities is not possible. As they are state-owned, they are imprescriptible. In theory, transfer of objects between museums is possible, but it seems not a common procedure.
