USA TODAY.COM AUGUST 2007 TRACES OF 2,400- YEAR-OLD GREEK WRECK FOUND NEAR ALBANIA Encrusted with tiny shells and smelling strongly of the sea, a 2,400-year-old Greek jar lies in a saltwater bath in Durres Museum, on Albania's Adriatic coast. Part of a sunken shipment of up to 60 ceramic vessels, the 26-inch storage jar, or amphora, was the top find from what organizers say is the first archaeological survey of this small Balkan nation's seabed, conducted by U.S. and Albanian experts. “Touch it, touch it, it’s luck” said mission leader George Robb of the Key West Florida-based RPM Nautical Foundation. “You’re touching something that has been made before Plato was born.”
