In 1999, Lošinj became richer as the Croatian Apoxyomenos, an old bronze statue of the ancient Greek athlete, was found. To be more precise, in 1999 the bronze statue was discovered in the sea between the islet of Vela Orjula and the island of Lošinj. It is assumed that it has been at the bottom of the sea since the 1st century AD when it was sacrificed to the gods for the safe continuation of the voyage during a storm, as the ship was in danger of being overturned.
