The head of a statue dating back to Roman times was pulled out of the sea near Preveza, at a depth of about 10 meters, ANA reports.
According to an announcement by the Ministry of Culture, this is the head of a Roman-era statue, probably made at the time of the emperors Antoninus or Severus (2nd – 3rd century AD).
Based on the same announcement, the head, made of Pentelic marble, is almost intact except for parts of the headdress, the nose, the right ear, and a small part of the chin, while it was found partially covered with marine life.
