New findings from Antikythera

On the current expedition at the wreck in which the Antikythera Mechanism had been found:

"... a group of Greek, American and Swiss researchers map[s] the ancient shipwreck’s immediate environs. The international team, which has already started geophysical searches using metal detectors, aims to complete its survey by October 15. ... Thus far, the group has surmised that the boat which sank off Antikythera’s coast was carrying more than just an ancient astrological device. It may have been carrying priceless works of art, too. What is more, a second shipwreck has been discovered just 250 meters away from the first. Some experts believe that the two vessels might have been traveling together. It is conceivable that a second mechanism awaits discovery in the second shipwreck."

"Although the scientific expedition exploring the ancient Antikythera shipwreck was launched in September 15, the discoveries have yet to be announced.
Greek newspaper “Ta Nea,” citing claims by the chairman of the “Aikaterini Laskaridis” foundation and one of the mission’s sponsors, Panos Laskaridis, revealed that the Culture Ministry leadership prohibited the scheduled presentation of the discoveries so that Culture Minister Kostas Tasoulas can announce the results in an event to be held in Athens, Greece, in the coming days.
The newspaper refers to important discoveries, including a large amount of copper coins.
It is estimated that official announcements will take place on October 9, when Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras will visit the island of Antikythera."
