Accompanied by some defender ships, a short battle ensued, but the submarine managed to dive and get away. She is large and lies between 75-90m.

SS PATRIS (not to be confused with PSS Patris) Patroklos Island. The carrier Patris , built in England in 1902, was travelling from Piraeus to Naxos in June 1927 and collided with the carrier Mosxanthi Togia sinking within 2 minutes. Eleven lives were lost. She lies at depths between 67 and 72m.

About a mile and a half south of Sounio, she started to incline at an angle of 40-45 degrees. The Captain broadcast a Mayday and the crew prepared for the worst. Captain lost control of the helm and the ship overturned and sank.
