The largest treasure of gold coins discovered in Israel was found in recent weeks on the seabed in the ancient harbor in Caesarea National Park.

The group of divers from the diving club in the harbor found the lost treasure. The divers of the Israel Antiquities Authority went together with the group of divers out to where the coins were found and using a metal detector discovered almost 2,000 gold coins in different denominations.


GC Rieber Shipping had a loss of NOK 201.4 million in the fourth quarter 2014, compared with a loss of NOK 73.5 million in the corresponding period in 2013.

The negative result in the fourth quarter 2014 is due to loss provisions for the seller’s credit to the HV V Golf companies as well as loss provisions on outstanding receivables relating to Reef Subsea amounting to a total of NOK 211.0 million.
