A 40-meter stone pool built in the era of the Roman Empire (4th century BC) was found close to the coastal neighborhood of Ostia, in Rome, Italy. The archaeological discovery was released last Wednesday (9).

“Another success of preventive archeology, essential for not dispersing our past, and for protecting and valuing territories that would otherwise remain unknown,” said Rome’s special superintendent, Daniela Porro, in a statement.

“A discovery that renews the astonishment about Rome and the endless stories that have yet to be told,” she continued on the construction classified as “extraordinary” by the National Museum of Rome.

The function of the pool has not yet been discovered, as it is the first of its kind. According to the researchers, the site may have been used as a water reservoir, settling tank or area for performing rituals and planting.
