Isis in Florence!

Ansa reported on 28 May that a digging crew working beneath a Florence, Italy courthouse have stumbled across the probable remains of an Isis temple. Other remains associated with the Egyptian goddess Isis have been discovered in the area. This news won’t surprise many, given the immense popularity of the goddess in Italy, but if archaeologists can recover  architectural elements this would be a major find indeed. Exciting stuff.
