The finds, which were recovered by the Coast Guard of Brindisi with the help of the diving team of San Benedetto del Tronto, date back to different times: from the second century BC, until the late Imperial era. Part of a 17th century sailboat pulley and rope were also recovered.

Of particular importance was the discovery of pieces of an amphora of Forlimpopoli, evidence of the many trade with the ancient city with Salento.



All the material was temporarily entrusted to the Port Authority of Brindisi, for the subsequent transfer to the Superintendence.
