Italian newspapers reported on Saturday that a Russian metals mogul wants to buy the ruins of Sicily's Valley of the Temples.
Mikhail Prokhorov, who's thought to be worth about 14 billion euros, has yet to confirm his interest.
The seven incredible Greek Doric structures were built around 450 BC. The area was made a UNESCO world heritage site in 1997.
"It's not for sale", said Marco Zambuto, the Mayor of Agrigento, a small town on the south coast of Sicily where the temples' ruins sit.
