Shot Marks

Historical artifacts?
Shot marks on historical facade in Athens, Greece

On my Sunday drawing excursion I came by this building which spotted some examples of what I guess are shot marks from WWII or the following civil war in Greece. I guess they are left there on purpose, because the building is in good shape otherwise, it's even listed in the "contemporary monuments database" of the "Archeology of the city of Athens". No mentions of the war wounds on the facade though. Also in the first and second floor the marks seem at least to have been partially repaired.

The address is Αμαλίας 42 (Amalias 42), just opposite Hadrian's arch and the temple of Olympian Zeus. Click on the image for a big panorama view of the scenery.
