Podere Cannicci – Day 2, 2020

The first real day of excavations at Podere Cannicci gave some joys and some sorrows! The high temperature of the day (our sorrow!) was well compensated by some exciting discoveries.

The cleaning of the opening of the excavation area revealed the presence of a wall, and the team started to remove its collapse (US 2) which was already exposed last year. During the activities, two Roman bronze coins were found, one of which bearing the shape of the prow of a ship ,and a Janus bifrons. A preliminary date for the coin is around the second half of the 2nd century BC.

Tomorrow, we expect to have some new discoveries.
