A team of divers from Sidon has discovered the remains of what appears to be 11 ancient Greek ships thought to date from the third century B.C., a statement released by the group Tuesday said. The team was led by Mohammad al-Sarji, head of the Lebanese Union of Professional Divers and director of the Sidon Diving Academy.The main center of Tyre had been a heavily fortified island, forcing Alexander the Great to build a causeway allowing him to breach the fortifications after laying siege to the city for seven months.Sarji expressed belief that the ships would have transported the stones required to create the road.
