Remains of ancient port in Agrigento Sea
trefwoorden: ItaliŽ - Agrigento - onderwater archeologie - haven
An "important under water archaeological site" has been discovered in the tract of sea opposite the mouth of the river Akragas, in Agrigento, by a submarine of the Italian Naval League.
Deep in the estuary, great blocks have been found along with paving stones. This is the ancient port of Agrigento. But there are also pieces of finely worked limestone. It is also thought that there was a temple. The results of the discovery have already been communicated to the Superintendency of Cultural and Environmental Goods in Agrigento, who will have to conduct further searches.
