Divers have discovered a Roman tombstone from the Drava river in Croatia.

The relief shows a mythical scene, possibly Venus with two cupids, but archaeologists cannot be certain before the restoration work is completed. Both pieces are believed to date to the second or third century.

Underwater archaeologist Kruno Zubcic discovered the find weighing 400 kilograms at a depth of five metres, daily Jutarnji List writes.
