Byzantine wreck on Ragusa seabed


Ragusa, August 6

The wreck of a Byzantine ship whose period is datable between the third and the fourth century after Christ, was found on the seabed of Ragusa by Carabinieri underwater squads of Messina. The ship is a few metres under the water on "Circe's sandbanks", in front of Marina di Marza's coast, near Ispica. Ragusa's superintendence will make some researches after summer, because in this part of sea there are now many tourists. The area is now delimited and will be controlled by Carabinieri to avoid thefts or damages.
