The site of a Bronze Age shipwreck off the southwestern coast of Turkey between Rhodes and Cyprus from the 13th century BC. The small merchant ship was carrying copper and bronze ingots, still wrapped in basketry. Excavation also produced a structural plan of the ship, including evidence of a grill of twigs on the bows to keep water off the deck - a technique still in use today. The finds included pottery and three scarabs.
