The 2,000-year-old 'supertanker'

By Michael Theodoulou

Two years ago, a Cypriot diver was stunned by a chance find: hundreds of ancient ceramic wine jars, rising from a featureless expanse of flat, desert-like seabed off Cyprus's southern coast.

Together they formed the shape of a ghostly ship, still submerged beneath the sands.

It now appears that what the diver discovered was a supertanker of its time, and the biggest and probably oldest wreck ever found in the island's waters.
