Ancient Roman Statue, Ashkelon, Israel
from La Republica
Evocative photo from a gallery of images posted in Italian daily La Republica. This ancient statue was uncovered after some rough weather stirred the coastal sands.
Original Italian caption:
E’ rimasta sepolta per secoli ma grazie alle burrasche che hanno colpito la costa israeliana in questio giorni, una splendida statua romana priva del capo è riaffiorata nei pressi della città di Ashkelon. Alta più di un metro, la scultura in marmo bianco, pesa circa 200 kg e raffigura una donna con la toga e i sandali.
And in English via Google Translate:
It had been buried for centuries, but thanks to the storms that hit the Israeli coast in recent days, a splendid Roman statue with no head has resurfaced near the city of Ashkelon. More than a meter high, the sculpture in white marble, weighs about 200 kg and depicts a woman with a robe and sandals.
