Phoenician temple found in SicilyBreaking News
The temple was discovered last year when part of a lagoon near the Phoenician city of Motya -- now called Mozia -- was drained.
The "monumental" temple was found on the westernmost tip of Sicily near Marsala. Archeologists say they've also found columns of a type used by the Phoenicians on Cyprus, as well as fragments of an obelisk.
Motya, which means "wool-spinning center," was founded in the 8th century B.C., about a century after the founding of the most famous Phoenician colony in the ancient world, Carthage, in Tunisia, ANSA reported.
