Ambrosiadou funds return of 'Magemenes' to Greece.

Elena Ambrosiadou, CEO of Limassol-based Ikos Asset Management, is paying 180,000 euros for copies of eight statues exhibited in the Louvre to be returned to Thessaloniki, in a deal struck with mayor Yiannis Boutaris.

The copies of the original second century B.C. statues, which were removed by French historian Emanuel Miller in 1862, will return to Greece's second largest city in 2012 when it celebrates the hundredth anniversary of liberation from Ottoman rule.

The statues, called "Las Incantadas", or the enchanted ones, by the city's Jewish community, show the mythical figures Maenas, Dionysos, Ariadne, Leda, Ganymede, Dioscuros, Aura and Nice.
