The ANTARES collaboration reported the results of a search for point-like neutrino sources using data taken in the period 2007-2010. An unbinned maximum likelihood based all-sky search yielded a cluster of 9 (5) events within a cone of 3 (1) degrees around (R.A., Dec) = (-46.5deg, -65.0deg). The trial factor corrected p-value of 2.6% (2.2 sigma) is not significant enough to claim the observation of an astrophysical point source. However, it currently constitutes the most significant localized neutrino excess observed by ANTARES. Here we present a multi-wavelength analysis including optical to X-ray archival data and a dedicated analysis of gamma-ray data from Fermi-LAT. In order to cover the TeV domain, dedicated observations with the H.E.S.S. telescope array were carried out. We present these data and discuss implications of the results in terms of signatures for a cosmic-ray acceleration site.
