Italian archaeologists have discovered a large Roman basin that dates in some parts to the 5th century BCE. The property is located between Rome and Ostia Antica.

The pool is 48 meters long and 12 meters wide. In fact, the discovery took place in June 2019, but only now has the information been announced. Work on the conservation of the site is still ongoing.
