One of the Riace Bronzes emerging from the sea, 40 years ago. The Riace bronzes were discovered August 16, 1972. The classical Greek statues were spotted partly buried in the sand by a snorkeler, Stefano Mariottini, about 300 meters off the cost of Riace, near Reggio Calabria, Italy. They came out of the sea four days later, and are housed in the Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia in Reggio Calabria, Italy.
