Another golden treasure discovered in Florida waters

This past Tuesday, June 4, Captain Dan Porter and the crew of the vessel M/V “Capitana” made another unusual and significant discovery near the site known as the Corrigan Wreck. During excavations conducted at the site, a gold object with engraving was found.

At the moment it is known that for sure it is an artefact connected with the Christian religion. All thanks to the visible fragments of the inscription IHS, i.e. the Christogram, i.e. the monogram which is a symbol of Jesus Christ, presented in the form of an acronym. In Greek it is an abbreviation of the name IHΣΟΥΣ (Jesus).

The object is now undergoing cleaning and conservation treatments. Once this work is complete, it will reveal all its secrets in its full glory and possibly allow for more accurate identification.

The so-called Corrigan wreck is believed to be the ship ‘Santo Cristo de San Román’. The name under which it functions comes from Hugh Corrigan, a beachcomber who started looking for treasure near Vero Beach in 1950.

In the 1960s. Kip Wagner acquired the lease rights to the wreck and explored the area until the mid-1970s, when the state temporarily closed the site. In the 1980s, Mel Fisher’s company gained exclusive rights to the site, but work was carried out here mainly through subcontractors. The situation persisted until 2010, when the rights to the wreck were acquired by 1715 Fleet – Queens Jewels LLC.
