Fisherman nets ancient statue in Greece

Date: 1/8/2006

A Greek fisherman has handed over to authorities a large section of an ancient bronze statue brought up in his nets in the Aegean Sea. The male torso was found near the eastern Aegean island of Kalymnos. The one-metre high find belonged to a statue of a horseback soldier, and would have been part of the cargo of an ancient ship that sank in the area.
