Bellow is informations, how SPARTA dissapeared and even if you visit today, there is almost nothing left...
Treasures of ancient Greek art were destroyed and looted , as is known from Roman , Frankish crusaders , the Venetian general Morosini and the British
( Scottish actually) Elgin .
Equally great destruction brought by envy museums, to rush and loot, also destroy, so the competitors wont get anything.
Universities and kings of Europe , who came to Greece during the Ottoman rule , to loot coins , manuscripts , inscriptions and artwork.
All those exaggerates greed and devastation caused by the ancestral treasures of Greece Abba Michel Fourmont (1690/1746), sent by the king of France
Louis IE ". Abba Fourmont surpassed Elgin regarding the brutal manner of destruction of monuments , which literally wiped out , and the incredible
number of antiquities destroyed .
