Famed Roman Shipwreck Could Be Two

A dive to the undersea cliff where a famous Roman shipwreck rests has turned up either evidence that the wreck is enormous -- or a suggestion that, not one, but two sunken ships are resting off the Greek island of Antikythera.

Interesting, but hardly surprising. Think about the enormity of the Greek fleet, the Roman fleet (mightiest in the known world at the time) and others..........Macedonians, etc. Why would anyone thinkt that the remains of one vessel might be the only remains in a particular area? Watch again the naval battle scenes from the movie, Ben Hur. While primitive by today's standards in film, it accurately depicts how many vessels went down at the same time, especially when RAMMING an opponent was commonly done. Why would anyone think only one vessel would sink then?
