I watched the documentary about this last Monday evening on a UK TV channel. Very interesting as was part 1 shown the previous week. They proved it was Greek by using a vacuum on the ROV to clear the sludge from the Rudder. The shape matched exactly that pictured on ancient Greek vases. They also found among other wrecks a sunken Roman ship laden to the "gunnels"with Amphorae.
