Plenty of coverage of this one, but all the coverage is brief and apparently derived from an AP wire story. A fisherman working between Kos and Kalymnos hauled up his net and found it contained (as was later determined) a section of a bronze equestrian statue dating to the second century B.C.. The statue is currently undergoing conservation/restoration.
