Wednesday, September 04, 2013
ROME, ITALY—Monumental walls, marble building fragments, coins, and thousands of pieces of pottery dating to the late Republican and Imperial periods were discovered by police in farmland to the southeast of Rome. The artifacts had been uncovered by looters, who also left behind metal detectors and two-way radios. The site is important because of its great size and its proximity to the temple of Juno at Lanuvio.
