Tusa, The site of the Battle of the Aegates Islands at the end of the First Punic War, which was entirely ready to go to  the printer, has been withdrawn because Mr James Goold of Covington & Burling LLP, Washington D.C., the legal counsel for RPM Nautical Foundation, has informed us that one of the two lead authors is not authorized to publish this material.
