  • [01] National Archaeological Museum to extend Antikythera Shipwreck exhibition to June

    ANA-MPA - The National Archaeological Museum's exhibition "The Antikythera Shipwreck: The Ship, the Treasures, the Mechanism" is to extended until June 29, lasting throughout the Greek EU presidency in the first half of 2014.

    "There has been a great response to the exhibition in Greece and abroad and we believe that people who visit our country because of the presidency will admire the show," the museum's deputy director Georgios Kakavas told the ANA-MPA.

    "The benefit is that, with this exhibition, the museum's revenues have grown from 45% to 81% each month."

    The exhibition was launched in April 2012 and was initially scheduled to run for one year, while its duration has been repeatedly extended.

    It focuses on the famous shipwreck that yielded the mysterious Antikythera mechanism - also dubbed the world's first analog computer wreck - that occurred at approximately 60-50 BC. The exhibits include other items of cargo on board the vessel, which may have been heading for Rome when it sank, which were mainly bronze and marble statues dating from the 4th to the 1st century BC.

    The cargo was accidentally discovered in 1900 by divers from the island of Symi and was raised in two stages: in the year of 1900-1901 and in 1976 by the Greek Archaeological service and Jacques-Yves Cousteau's oceanographic ship "Calypso".
