Two Israeli divers uncovered several artifacts in the Mediterranean sea. This discovery is Israel's biggest underwater Roman-era finding in three decades (30 years)! Ran Feinstein and Ofer Ranaan came across a shipwreck near the port of Caesarea last month.

The artifacts the two men unearthed was the precious Roman-era cargo, which consists of bronze statues, lamps, jars, animal-shaped objects, anchors, and thousands of coins with images of 
Roman emperors Constantine and Licinius. 

Some of the relics date from the fourth centery, and others from the first and second century.
