Centuries old lost Roman city found perfectly intact

 Mubasher: A Roman city that disappeared beneath the waves of the Mediterranean was just found “perfectly intact”.

 The city of Baiae, which is believed to have been sunk nearly 1,700 years ago was found on the west coast of Italy, near Naples, according to the UK's Daily Star.

 

 

“It was a place synonymous with luxury and wickedness, historians claim – a wine-soaked party town,” the newspaper said.

Baiae was believed to be the resort perused by super-rich Romans with their massive-sized and elaborate mansions.

 

The city was lost to the sea after volcanic activity resulted in a 400-metre retreat in the coastline.
