ATHENS, Greece — Archeologists in Greece have uncovered a rare wooden statue preserved in the muddy depths of an ancient well in Piraeus, the port of Athens.
A Culture Ministry statement said Tuesday that the roughly 20-inch-high dressed male figure was found without its head, hands and feet, together with broken pottery dating to about 100-86 B.C.
It was unclear who the statue might depict.
The piece was found during an excavation of ancient wells in central Piraeus, where a new subway line will be built.
