Later Years in Greece
Despite the controversies brought up in England, Lusieri remained employed under Lord Elgin. After he arrived in Malta on the Hydra with Nicolo Giraud, Byron, and the second collection of Elgin marbles in 1811, he spent months attempting to recondition the cases used for storing the marbles and discussing obtaining new credits with Elgin's bankers. While Lusieri was in Athens, a new discovery which was achieved by Charles Robert Cockerell involved examinations of all the possible ancient buildings that could be located. Cockerell and his party discovered the Aegina marbles at the Temple of Jupiter Panhellenius which can be dated before the Parthenon, between the archaic and the classical periods. This chapter looks into what happened to these Aegina marbles and to the other discoveries of Cockerell.
