Apollo's Crib Found

On the island of Delos, or rather, off the island of Delos archeologists discovered an ancient Greek settlement. Lying about six feet under water the settlements sports a pottery barn. Er, not a pottery barn, but rather a pottery workshop. Delos was of course the birth place of Apollo and held sacred by ancient Greeks. It became a thriving center for commerce, particularly the slave trade.

Delos lies south and east of Athens, close the larger island of Mikonos.

Of course, one of these days these ancient gods are going to get tired of modern man mucking around in there old playgrounds. Then there will be heck to pay!
