Antikythera shipwreck artifact. Fragments of a cast bronze statue of the 'Philosopher of Antikythera' recovered from the Antikythera shipwreck. The Antikythera was a 60 metre luxury cargo ship that was sunk in 60 BC during a voyage from Greece to Rome. It is the richest shipwreck ever found, containing numerous statues, coins and other artifacts dating back to the 4th century BC. Also found was the severely corroded remnants of a device widely regard as the world's oldest known analogue computer, the Antikythera mechanism.
