The Minos…

The Minos, a tentative reconstruction of what the ships with which the Minoan Cretans ruled the Aegean 3,500 years ago may have looked like, is blessed by an Orthodox priest during its launch yesterday in the harbor of Hania. The 17-meter wooden vessel, which was built over the past 12 months in the western Cretan town with the sort of tools Bronze Age Cretans would have used, will sail its maiden voyage to Athens on June 5.
