Of no historical value

From the National Post:

An inscription at a medieval dungeon translated as "Where God does not exist" is causing a political furor in Turkey as the Islamist-influenced government faces accusations of having ordered the erasure of the sign.

The head of the Archeology Museum in Bodrum, an Aegean resort popular with foreign tourists, said the Culture Ministry ordered the 500-year-old inscription scraped away after government inspectors decided that it had "no historical and archeological value."

Just like these were of no significant value?
