"In recent weeks ancient remains have emerged near Ponte Milvio", explains the Special Superintendence of Rome in a brief statement. "These are the ruins of a residential building of Imperial Age, found along the bank of the river thanks to a preliminary inspection at a utilities worksite along the Acea-Areti."

"In view of the seasonal rise in the Tiber level expected within days and which could damage the finds, the excavation will be temporarily halted."
