Less than one percent of the hull and no cargo was found on this wreck, located close to the Punic ship above. Its dating comes solely from that proximity. It is generally assumed that this was part of a merchant galley or warship. The outstanding features of these remains are the two tusk-like timbers that curved upward beyond the stem. They were probably part of a very elaborate bow structure for a ram or cutwater. 1
