    Submerge cities are always interesting to look at. Considering Neapolis was such an important city; the Romans must have really spurned them. Since they sided with Carthage in the third Punic War, to have recorded so little about them as the article suggests.

    “This discovery has allowed us to establish with certainty that Neapolis was a major centre for the manufacture of garum and salt fish, probably the largest centre in the Roman world,” Mr Fantar added.

    There were some amazing pictures taken from that submerged Roman site at Baiae, near Naples, that were taken recently.

    Neapolis was hit by a massive tsunami in the 4th century, and Baiae sunk into the bay of Naples, because of volcanic activity.

    Because the coast subsided, largely due to local volcanic activity, most of Baiae is now under water in the Bay of Naples.[4]
