Roman-era shipwrecks found on Greek coast

The remains of two wooden shipwrecks, complete with potter and marble artifacts, have been found off the western coast of Greece.

A ministry statement says the wreckage was found in an area where a Greek-Italian gas pipeline is to be located, the Associated Press reports.

A Greek oceanographic vessel using side-scan radar and robot submarines took footage of scattered pottery, ballast stones and what could be remains of the wooden ships, the AP reports.

The team also raised samples of pottery and marble artifacts.
