This annual edition is dedicated to the memory of the late Nicholas C. Los, the pioneering founder of the Chios Maritime Museum.

It was his vision and tireless efforts, together with donations from the descendants of Anastassis and Marouko Pateras, which made this museum a reality in the summer of 1994.

The main subject of this year’s ‘Nautilus’ is the ‘Age of Discovery’: the reasons and causes which led to the discovery of new civilisations and lands. Inspired by the model ship ‘Santa Maria’, we examine the connection between Christopher Columbus with Chios.
