I was thinking the other day that unfortunately, there doesn
t exist a thing like this anymore. Not of this size, that is. So, wonderful discovery indeed!

Remember when they discovered the villa dei papiri in Pompeij, where they discovered some originals of greek and latin philosophers. It's just impressive...
