An amphora, a tall jar used by ancient merchants, is shown off by expedition chief scientist Dwight Coleman of the Institute for Exploration in Mystic, Connecticut. The amphora, resting on the deck of the Bulgarian research vessel Akademik, was recovered from the depths of the Black Sea in August 2002 as part of the Black Sea Program led by Robert Ballard. Fish bones tucked into the amphora were found to date to between the fifth and third centuries B.C.
