1st Cent. AD Shipwreck and the Lead Ingots

Josephus wrote his composition referring to Sebastosas an intact, properly operating complex, it appears that the placement and date of the wreck indicates the harbor's. The most surprising items recovered from this site are a group of lead ingots (Photo of Lead Ingots); all are of the same mold and are undoubtedly from the wrecked vessel. Two of these ingots still retain their original form and imprinted markings, including the imperial imprint on their crest, which can easily be read as: IMP.DOMIT.CAESARIS.AUG.GER. [Articles of Interest] [Caesarea] [Archaeology]
