Fisherman nets 2,200-year-old bronze statue
ATHENS, Greece -- A Greek fisherman must have been expecting a monster of a catch when he brought up his nets in the Aegean Sea last week.
Instead, Greek authorities said his haul was a section of a 2,200-year-old bronze statue of a horseman.
A Culture Ministry announcement said Monday the find was made in waters between the islands of Kos and Kalymnos. The fisherman gave the figure to authorities, who have started the cleaning process.
Dating to the late 2nd century B.C., the statue is a male rider wearing ornate breast armor over a short tunic and armed with a sheathed sword. The trunk of the horseman and his right arm have survived.
