[Ancientartifacts] Re: Breaking news: Egyptian anchor discovered near Cyprus

Hi Everyone,

This just came across my email and thought you all would like to read it. Very interesting.


The find is not new (last year) but hits the news these weeks:

Press report: "A unique anchor discovered"
[URL submitted by Kat Newkirk]


"Professional diver Tevfik Camgöz discovers an ancient stone
anchor bearing hieroglyphic inscriptions off the shores of Kyrenia,
a major port city in northern Cyprus. The anchor was sent to
the British Museum, where it was discovered to be 3,000 years
old. Camgöz notes that his research is on going and does
not give information about the coordinates of the spot. (...)
"After an initial examination, some of the hieroglyphs were
decoded. The inscriptions included information about the
pharaoh's Cyprus expedition," said Camgöz. (..) "

Another press report [or rather a summary of a paper press
report] makes it still better, as it now suddenly are
pieces [multiple] of an Egyptian ship:


"(..) Tevfik Camgoz had found pieces of wreckage belonging
to an ancient Egyptian ship three miles off the Keryneia coast.
The paper reports that British archeologists were enable to
decipher the Egyptian hieroglyphs inscribed on the stone
anchor of the ship. The three thousand year-old pieces of the
ship will be studied by foreign Egyptologists and experts "

Perhaps the pharaoh is Ramesses III?
