Classical shipwreck found off Cyprus

Marine Archaeolgists from the University of Cyprus' Archaeology Research Unit are currently working on the site of a classical shipwreck off the south coast of Cyprus. The ship rests under 45 meters of water some 2 1/2 kilometers from shore. It was carrying a large number of amphorae from Chios when it sunk, over 2300 years ago.
