Scuba diver finds ruins of ancient Greek city

Published on July 27th, 2009 | by Admin


An amateur scuba diver, diving off the coat of Calabria in Italty, may have found the ruins of the ancient Greek city of Scylletium.

“Standing out against the sandy seabed there’s a dark-coloured form of around two metres in length and a metre and a half wide which seems to be man-made,” Ciliberto said.

“Continuing to explore the zone a few metres away, I found a white-coloured plinth half a metre high. Further on, there are a pair of stone blocks, one rectangular and of modest dimensions and the other an undefined shape,” he added.
