    Unusual find this morning @-120ft depth...a -30 BC find during scuba detection

    Hi guys,

    I was out this morning for a quick dive with my new Ebinger UW 722C PI detector and I had a few very very deep signals. To be honest they where so deep I couldn't dig them as I was diving on my own down 120/130 feet (I know it's bad ). Diving configuration Rebreather Nitrox 32/68 gas mix with 50% Oxygen poni for spare & deco.

    I was digging what appears to be "clother signals" for this detector and look what I've uncovered: an eyeball partial wine Amphora which appears to be from -30 BC -> +30 Period.

    It looks it is originating from south spain / portugal. Feel free to ask questions :-)
    I have shot with my Gopro..will push the video on my Youtub channel when I'll have time.But I have to arrange an other dive with mates to help me retrieving the metal objects I've located but was unable to uncover.

    Wow, that is crazy deep to be diving alone? And I thought I had it bad diving with a "Hookamax" in eight ft of water! Lol
    Congrats on a banner find and by the sounds of it more to come!
    I love this hobby so much, now I'm a coin licker!

    Hope to go back tomorrow morning with mates (trying to contact them at the present time), with the sea bed you can have 3ft of sand in a one night time, so as soon you go back, better it is ;-)

    I live in Michigan USA not a lot of history her. The ocean which covers more earth than land is gotta be full of history. I see this guy Mel Fisher and The Wells finding Spanish galleons Are you kidding me"Im happy to find a mecrcury dime or wheat cent after hours of hunting. I cant even imagine. then you have all thesse alien looking fish to contend with I guess you would need to know what they are and and if there a danger. I would give anything to be doing that. Have a great time finding more Ill be watching for your posts

    Its going to be 45 today and 50 tomorrow unseasonably warm but Im going stir crazy I got up early to go detecting I think I might have to rent an Auger to dig with hopefully in a few hours the ground will thaw.When I was younger I got a Archeology book given to me and there was a picture of people pulling up really old artifacts from the dead sea and from then on it always fascinated me how old some stuff in the ocean/sea are. Id think it would be kinda spooky in the water being dark and all the critters (NESSIE)the movie jaws doesn't help either I guess. I read an article about how not to long ago someone found the two man japanese sub in pearl harbor area with the two crew still inside ERIE. Sorry about the rant just fascinating to read and see your finds

    Nice find, and mind-blowing old. Although it sounds strange, solo dives are done regularly where I grew up. Bayman, as we call them here, dive for lobster, conch, and scallops daily. I used to be one myself, doing solo dives frequently.....But never to almost 5 atmospheres. I kept it under 3 and usually at 2.

    Anyway, GREAT FIND!! I bet there's more there!
