Residents, who saw the historical artifacts around the shore in the harbor, informed the Amasra Museum Directorate in the city. Following an examination, museum officials said the pieces might come from the Roman era.

Amasra Museum Director Baran Aydın said they believed the artefacts were dumped in the sea with the debris from a construction site many years ago.

Baran said they did not know how long the artifacts had been in the sea, adding that there were Roman-era figures on the artefacts.
