Notes :

The loss of the St. Anthony is recorded historically but her whereabouts remained a mystery until 1981 when, by chance, a holiday-maker discovered a copper ingot on the beach. The St. Anthony was a Portuguese carrack which foundered in 1527 during a passage from Lisbon to Antwerp, carrying a mixed cargo which included copper and silver ingots.
