From the Foreword by Valeria Li Vigni Tusa

The date of the naval battle of the Aegates, fought on March 10 241 B.C. between the navies of Rome and Carthage, coincides with the month and day my husband Sebastiano Tusa passed away on the tragic plane crash of the Ethiopian B38M near Bishoftu, Ethiopia: March 10 2019.
This coincidence is even more bizarre because Sebastiano was the most innovative and important scholar of such epoch-making event, providing results which have radically changed the stratified historiography of the final episode of the First Punic War. Such brilliant results were achieved thanks to the quality of his interdisciplinary research style, which included an accurate research of the primary sources together with a passion for the world of underwater archaeology. He had established a strong relationship with such a world and was convinced the importance of adhering to it would soon yield an interpretative key to the mapping of the new artifacts and pinpoint their site. He was gifted with the abilities to convey, divulgate, teach, and involve everyone of the new results of his explorations, entrusting them to the tutelage of an immense cultural heritage.
