Bronze statue of Zeus or Poseidon, dating to about 460 B.C. This statue was recovered from the sea decades ago near Cape Artemision, Euboea, Greece and is exhibited in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. All of the fine bronze Classical statues in that museum were recovered from sites underwater. (Brendan Foley WHOI)
