Happy to help Malcolm, I saw her in a derelict condition in 2003 when passing through Cagliari (along with numerous other wrecks located along that wharf). The other wrecks have since been removed after a cleanup of the port but for some reason the AETOS remains.
I've also wondered why she is labelled as a livestock carrier (since as you said, there doesnt seem to be any evidence for it). Possibly a conversion that never materialized?

Nevertheless, great photo!

Arrived at Cagliari on Dec 1, 1999, from Istanbul. Arrested for smuggling and laid. Sank i 2005.

many thanks Henry, much appreciated
per Miramar website:
built at Frederikshavn (Denmark) in 1966 as MERCANAUT [1994 cv to livestock carrier] - 76 RIMA M. - 96 WENDY M. - 99 AETOS

lost SE Cagliari 13.6.05 & derelict at Cagliari 10.13

I would only comment that there is little evidence of conversion into a livestock carrier

Best regards

This is the wreck of the livestock carrier AETOS (IMO 6618108), built in 1966. She has been there since the early 2000s.
