The mission succeeded in cleaning up and preparing for tourist divers the location of Mark Antony's palace, the Timonium.

It also cleaned up the wreckage of an ancient 35-metre wooden ship that lies on the bottom of Alexandria's harbour.

Two gold coins dating to the second century AD were discovered during the operations, as well as the limbs of a statue of Ptolemy II.
