A bronze lion’s head and a suit of armor have been found in the sea off the coast of the Calabria region in southern Italy, Italian media have reported, citing the scuba divers who found them. The sculpture, which weighs around 15 kilos, was found by two divers last Thursday. A third diver found the armor stuck in some underwater rocks nearby. “We think these are objects of value,” Bruno Bruzzaniti, one of the divers, was quoted by the ANSA news agency as saying. “The important thing is that they are looked after. This is a great discovery for the whole of Calabria.” The local coast guard has banned all shipping, fishing and bathing in the area as a formal search gets under way. Meanwhile local police are investigating how exactly the discovery occurred and why it was apparently reported so late. The police said the objects had not yet been handed over to the authorities. An expert cited by Il Quotidiano di Calabria said the artifacts were probably from a Greek or Phoenician ship that sank in the area. The area where the objects were found is close to Riace, where two ancient Greek bronze statues of warriors were recovered 40 years ago in a near-perfect state of conservation. The sculptures dated back to the fifth century B.C. From / Daily Star
