Greg and a coin conservator inspect coins
Odyssey co-founder Greg Stemm examines one of more than 500,000 coins recovered from the "Black Swan" site with a member of the conservation team.
Note: The visible coins in the foreground of this image are conserved coins from the "Black Swan" and have been reduced to a lower resolution so that the details cannot be discerned. The weights in Kilos visible on the buckets reference the weight of the coins in each bucket, and they are different because each bucket contains the contents of one chest of coins. They have been kept separate as an archaeological protocol in order to study the practices for packing and loading of the coins.
