One of the world's richest plate sets from the Eastern Roman Empire has been discovered off the coast of the southern province of Antalya's Adrasan district.

"We were not hopeful of finding anything considerable," said Selçuk University Archaeology Department academic Hakan Öniz. "Just then, we found a solid, very beautiful plate with its own colors. It made us very happy. We were amazed by the designs on it. As we found the others, we were surprised by the motifs on each plate. There are fish and flower motifs unique to the era. The workmanship was very good. All of them were 800-900 years old."
