Cavaliere Aristotelis Zervoudis is a professional diver from Greece.[1][2]

Notable discoveries[edit]

During his diving expeditions he discovered and identified several important wrecks like the steam ship SS Oria (one of the biggest disasters in maritime history with more that 4100 human losses),[1] the German submarine U-133[3][failed verification] and the steamship Himara[citation needed] (the biggest tragedy in Greek waters in peacetime with 389 human losses).

For his actions during the diving expeditions on the steamship Oria in June 2018 he was named a Knight and awarded the distinction of the Order of the Star of Italy (Cavaliere del' Ordine della Stella d' Italia) by the President of Italy Sergio Mattarella.[2]
