Jacques-Yves Cousteau

Commander Cousteau, with his ship Calypso, surveyed the Antikythera wreck site in 1953 and then returned in 1976 for an archaeological expedition together with a team of Greek archaeologists and divers. Artefacts from the 1976 dive joined the previously discovered objects at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.
