    No, I don't know Greece, I even didn’t knew that Dioskuria means something in Greece, In fact this ship was given to Georgia by Greeks and we called it so “Dioskuria.” So was called Sokhumi (its city In Western Georgia near the black sea, today this city is controlling by Abkhazian separatists and Russian soldiers) But this name to this city in antic period was given by Greeks. and what does it mean in Greece?

    It means what you read, comes from the greek name "ΔΙΟΣΚΟΥΡΟΣ" which in turn is composed of ΔΙΑΣ (Ζeus) and KOΥΡΟΣ (young man iirc). It's all greek pall, we certainly know how to take care of our ancient colonies.

    Enjoy they boat

    Thanks for information, in fact I respect Greece and Greek culture too much (as well as whole world) and I don't want to go far from theme of this thread but it must be sad that Georgia is also a country of Iberia and Kolkheti, Medea and Ayet. (you would probably have heard about them) So maybe some of our cities in antic period really were colonies of Greece but even in this case Georgia can hardly be called as ancient colony of Greece.
    P.S. In any case thanks for Boat.
