A Bronze Age shipwreck found at Cape Gelidonya near Finike, Turkey. In view of the cargo's nature and composition the excavators have proposed a possible levantine provenance. The remains of the ship sat at a depth of about 27 m, on irregular rocky bottom. It was located in 1954, and the excavation began in 1960 by Peter Throckmorton, George F. Bass, and Frédéric Dumas. Among the finds were Mycenaean pottery and copper and tin ingots.
