The Ottoman Empire was the universally recognised legal authority for Greece at the time. Ipso facto it was legal. Like I said, whether you morally agree with the position and whether Greece should have been ruled over by the Ottomans is another matter. It was however legal at the time the deal was done and the marbles were acquired legally.

It isn’t right, there’s quite a few stadiums that are just in or outside the town/city centres in the UK. Maybe right if you literally mean a few streets off the high street: The vast majority would be within the 5 mile range on this infographic aside from the odd stadium built within the last 10/20 years.
