(ANSA) – Genoa, September 16 – An underwater investigative
unit of the Italian police have discovered a Byzantine amphora
and what appears to be an ancient cannon about one mile off the
coast of the northwestern Liguria region and 38 meters below sea
level.
The cannon is currently being used as a habitat by a conger
eel, police said.
Divers also found a portion of a large Roman amphora made
of lead that dates back to a few centuries after the birth of
Christ.
It weighs several hundred tonnes and must have belonged to
a large Roman ship, police said.
